Window overhang drips

Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope this is the correct forum but if not maybe a mod could move this post.

 

I have a problem with the overhang on a couple of my window and door openings.  Basically rain water gathers on the outside edge of the overhang and drips onto the cill causing it to discolour and in fact eaating away at the edge (it is a sndstone composite cill). It also causes the cill to become discoloured. There is an external door under the window which has the same issue and there is normally  small drip just as you walk out the door. I've attached a photo sowing the situation. So I was wondering if I could attach some sort of aluminium lip to deflect the drips away from the overhang or is there some other solution? One of my issues when searching online is that I'm not sure if I ma using the correct terminology (overhang?) or what the name of the deflector is so that I can find a supplier. Thanks.

Is the water running off the parapet coping as well?  There is not much wall above the window so the problem maybe stems from the roof.

How far would the rain deflector need to project out from the wall?
