Gutter Diversion Quick FIx
 
2 Attachment(s)

Hi....I just purchased a place with known problems that I will be fixing over time. The foundation is a problem due to drainage, partly because there is inadequate gutters and poor overall drainage. I am attaching pictures of one of the gutters that drains directly to the foundation. Anyone have a simple (temporary) solution to diverting the water from this gutter away from the house? I don't know how to best mount a temporary downspout below this inadequate gutter and divert the runoff through PVC. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks for the input. Here's a bad and not to scale photoshopped idea of what might work. Could I notch out some corrugated PVC pipe, attach it to the gutter, and just run that down and away from the house? It seems like it would work as long as I can get it fastened securely. Any thoughts? Thanks.
