    Default Hip Roof, Inside Corner near Front Door

    Looking for a solution to heavy rain water run off at the front door. Please see attached photos. Need some way to direct water into the gutters or a wide catch basin at the inside corner.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Howdy, how far away from this corner are the down spouts? Consider adding one closer so the draining volume is increased. If you do not mind the appearance install a corner block made of sheet metal in an "L" about 3 inches taller then the gutter and 12" long and attach to inside top of the gutter it acts as a back splash in heavy reain.

    Downspouts are about 30 feet away, probably can't add another, garage is in the way to the left and she wants to add a patio to the right.

    The corner block is an option, I was thinking about something like that. Or a over-the-counter basin made for an inside corner, but I've not seen that anywhere and then I'm not sure how to support it or the weight of the water.

    Thanks, David
