Roof Gutter Drainage Idea

Here's a great idea for draining the water off of your roof and through the gutter system and away from the house. Installing something like this will take a little bit of creative thinking while installing the downspout.

Simply raise the downspout about 12 inches off of the ground, like you see in the picture above and install a removable gutter, pipe or water diverter to safely take the rainwater away from the house.

The arrow is pointing to a piece of gutter that can be removed when mowing the lawn or during the summertime and stored in a shed or the garage until needed.

This is a great idea, especially in a situation like this.
