It looks like a rain deflector that I have seen advertised at one time.

Well I looked at the rain deflector at the website given then back to the picture again. This appears to be back in under the eaves were the water can’t hit it unless they are hinged and rotate out into place. The other thing it may be is a vent.

Deflecting what? Hose water sprayed at the bottom side of the eave?

Soffit Vent??? Are you kidding?? How would this possibly vent the soffits?


This is a rain deflector… Exactly like the one in the website add. I can’t believe this is still being bantered around…


RAIN DEFLECTOR....

improperly installed rain deflector, too close to the eave and won’t disperse water from a hard rain very well or maybe not at all. It might deflect water from a light rain ok as it drips straight down but the deflection blades only are efficient with fast moving water.

Mike adding the notes to the photo certainly helps make this more easily to see it being a rain deflector. Thanks Mike.
