Yours is stick built and the way the roof
water is done is completely ****ed.
What's ****ed about the roof water?
That short section lying on the ground next to the path
isnt going to last long and the vertical looks bad too.
It's standard aluminum downspout.
The horizontal bit on the ground isnt.
Nearly every house in the U.S. has the same thing
Not the horizontal bit on the ground.
and it lasts as long as it needs to.
The horizontal bit on the ground doesn't.
That is just getting the water away from the
house so the basement is not as likely to flood.
A chain works much better when you have a decent eave.
They usually use splash blocks for that.
And that would last much longer.
I guess an extra 3" of aluminum was cheaper.
It's a lot more than 3", you presumably meant 3'
Still a ****ed way to do it.
I agree but these houses were built on the cheap.
My bet, with renters that thing won't last a week.
Yeah, that's what I meant. With a chain the worst that
can happen is some little kid tries to climb it and it
pulls out of the gutter and has to be put back.
You know nothing about water drainage from foundations.
You are wrong, as always. With the two alternatives being
discussed, the water ends up in the same place. The rain
chain survives the renters forever, the other one doesn't.
You are free to have the bottom of a rain chain see the
water into a pipe under the ground taking it anywhere
you like, topped with a grid and gravel/stones to let
the water get into it there.
Rain chains are basically a yuppie decoration.
You have never had a ****ing clue about anything at all, ever.
