Here's another one of those tricky situations where we had to create a customized downspout. This gazebo near Tenino needed gutters because when it rained, the run-off was splashing inside the covered area. It was also eroding the soil and over time could have damaged the concrete slab.
Since there are no walls like on a house, we needed to attach the downspouts to the support beams. However, as you can see in the picture, the support beams do not have any open sides where we could directly run a gutter down to the ground.
Our solution was to create custom elbow joints to wrap around one of the cross beams. We chose this location because the downspouts would be better protects and less likely to be damaged than if we'd run them along the outside profile of the support beams. We also didn't want to cover up the metal brackets that hold the structure together, so was just as much an aesthetic decision.
No matter what type of structure you have, if it needs gutters, our team at Capitol Gutter will find a way to install them. Contact us today and we'll be happy to give you a free quote.
