..........but it made I laugh - it's on the house next door to the roof I'm doing.

Just to clarify, nothings slipped or become detached, the down pipe from the gutter above the window is discharging (once it's brim full :mrgreen: ) onto the roof above the gutter at the side.

Haha, well I guess it was the easiest way to do it, I can't help thinking there is a prettier solution though.

You say it works

I doubt it, there will be water in the elbow, these square joints are never 100% water tight, so i guess its leaking

Hardly worth putting guttering on such a poxy bit of roof - I guess its just to stop the run-off driving into the window in high winds.

Thats a poor design of doormer too. Why not just have a proper gable front and avoid the guttering issue altogether.

I only suppose it works, as the outlet is lower than the inlet, I've not been there in the rain yet to observe it in action.

If it had leaked when first installed I'd guess someone would have sealed it up by now with silicone or solvent weld.

I suppose putting a stop end "T" on on end, and running a downpipe one side of the window, with a shoe on the bottom to discharge onto the roof below, would be complicated by the vertical tiles which make fitting brackets tricky.........

Minging they should have just left it off altogether.

And as for the lead work :sad:
