“Rain Diverter” Stops Leaks Around Doors, Windows
There’s a cheap and simple way to keep rain from leaking into and around doors and windows, according to the manufacturer of these “rain diverters.”
Made from durable ABS plastic, Door Brim rain diverters extend 7 1/2 in. away from the wall. They come with a front gutter that diverts rain water off to the side.
The rain diverters are available in 3 colors and a variety of sizes to protect many kinds of doors and windows. Shorter models can be used to protect pipe wall penetrations, doggie doors, electric panels, car chargers, and so forth. Color-matched, stainless steel concrete screws and washers are available for installation.
The company’s 52-in. standard width rain diverter is sized for a standard 36-in. door or window. Extended width custom sizes can be used with center structural brackets to achieve whatever width you want.
“These rain diverters are superior to competitor metal flashings for several reasons,” says inventor Rich Jasinski. “Made from ABS plastic, they’ll never rust. The gutter not only prevents dripping, but also directs water out and away from the building. And they preserve not only the door and jambs, but also the hardware.”
Jasinski says the rain diverters are popular with homeowners who have problems with leaky doors and windows, and with home building contractors as well as architects who specify the product on new commercial buildings.
“I’ve made them up to 14 ft. wide for garage doors. They also can be used to protect electric vehicle recharging stations on the sides of commercial buildings,” he says.
The rain diverters are available in standard UV-protected colors of almond (off white), beige, or gray and can be painted any custom color. They’re sold only online at https://doorbrim.com.
A 52-in. standard width rain diverter sized for a standard 36-in. door or window sells for $179 to $206 plus S&H. Extended width models measuring 54 to 96 in. wide sell for $349 to $365 plus S&H.
“If you’re unsure which size to order, you can email us a photo or sketch with measurements,” says Jasinski.
