We have a screened in porch that has a support posts made of cedar. Due to moisture, the cedar rotted (was cemented in) and have to have new supports made at the bottom of several posts. One downspout runs right next to one support post but should be reconfigured to be out and away from this post.
Is there any great way to support the downspout as it comes right off the gutter? The overhand is about 6 to 8" . Our house is rather contemporary so any gingerbread is out of the question. In essence, the gutter now drains so the downspout angles in toward the post, runs along the post for 7 feet, then elbows out to drain toward the back yard.
Any suggestions will be appreciated!
