Introduction & Information about These Funnels

My primary work has been residential gutter and downspout replacement for the last 2 decades with custom durable rust-free sheet metal rain management products. These scuppers are fancy funnels used to enhance the looks or improve functionality of a flat roof drain to avoid a back-up over the roof if this transition were to clog, which it will. Although, many are installed wrong. A common mistake done for aesthetic reasons, where they are mounted too high to cover the roof drain hole. It is imperative the upper rim is mounted below the roof surface, so it can just over flow outside the roof when it backs up.

These sort of scuppers are not just a cheap V shape funnel with an upper rim you may have seen other Gutter Contractors use. Typically made with just cheap steel.

This has been a dead art for over half a century. It will take us a full days work or more w/o interruption just to build 1 of these. That does not take into consideration the many hours spent working out the details with my clients through e-mail, or getting it securely boxed up and delivered to the shipper, so these cost a bit more than just a simple mass produced funnel. The range from $300 to $900 each depending on the size and complexity.


Many sheet-metal shops across the country make simple generic sized 'V' shaped painted steel or aluminum funnels that will certainly do the job in most cases, but tend to have a rather small outlet at the bottom that will clog easily. I can make those as well, but I pride myself as a custom coppersmith w/artistic edge. Making products that are better than standard. I place a lot of my focus on durability even over aesthetics. I work hard to design them as seamless as possible even when it's not a practical use of the copper sheets. There's little point to put this much effort into one of these if it's just going to wear out or look haggard within a couple decades by using a thinner copper. They might as well be just made with steel in that case.

Most any other copper scuppers I've seen were made with just a paper thin 12oz copper sheet metal to reduce cost, so there's less client sticker shock, easier to cut, and bend as well. Although, they will fail before long. I use a 20oz copper or thicker, like the 32oz copper scupper seen at the right.

I also build a smooth slope copper funnel liner in these scuppers to take the abuse decades of running water and debris will do. I have an old copper scupper (seen below) that I took of a house, which had holes worn through the side walls. This liner prevents the outer shell from becoming compromised. The liner can be replace if needed without replacing the expensive decorative outer shell that has aged so nicely.

CBD is not the fastest fabricator for large orders, but if you care about lasting quality and personal service I'm well worth the wait. Here's a link to our Latest News page for my time-line and my Contact web page link near the top and bottom of each page for requesting a quote.

Why's there so few craftsmen left?

Looking in the phone book for local sheet-metal shops is just taking a stab in the dark, since you cannot see what work they have done or get referrals.

It seems there are not a lot of talented sheet-metal fabricators promoting their work on the web. Or at least willing to correspond through e-mail with photos and diagrams needed for small projects like these.  It is not uncommon for me to respond to a dozen e-mails to work out these details. It takes a good deal of care, and swift attention. To work this out across these wires takes good prompt friendly communication skills and discipline few seem to have. 

To do good custom work like this requires good geometry skills, imagination, and a high mechanical comprehension.  Diagrams and digital photos have to be passed in order to work out crucial details, so this will work out just right without complication.  Few are willing to invest that kind of personal attention to ask the right questions unless it's for a large development project where a hundred units are being ordered.

Here's an old ornate copper scupper I
replaced in 2002 on the Yocum house

It was really beautifully constructed, but it
was made with such thin copper it had holes worn through the left side wall and the solder
joints had cracked open in several places w/o any signs of an impact.

What are your qualifications?
Of course what you see here on this web site is the best example of what I am capable of w/prices listed, but you will find a little more of my background on my Main Profile page.

Why I do this?
It is true I can make more replacing gutters locally, but it is a question how much longer I will be able to man-handle my 32' ladder to climb up on roofs. It is hard to charge enough for all the time and effort I put into these creations. Especially when I cannot even come close to competing with the common industrial 'V' shaped funnels or mass-produced items from China or India with slave labor.  I do love being creative and getting to know people from different parts of the world, if only in some small way. You are likely to find me quite friendly and even chatty with my clients.

These scuppers may be something that can simply be mass-produced and stocked on a shelf waiting to be ordered, but it has been very rare I've been able to reuse a template for a scupper I've made in the past. Clients have different size needs and the desired look. I do not stock any scuppers, since I have not found one design that seems to be more popular than others. I encourage clients to be creative and tell me what they want to see in a more ornate scupper.

I'm careful to respond to each e-mail within 24 hours, but it may take over 8 hours of my time just to get all the details worked out over several weeks, depending on how fast the client responds back with the info I need.  Then several more hours to design and fabricate a simple $200 scupper.  This has to be a work of passion, since it is not making us a lot of money.

PS: I recommend against using round downspouts for several reasons as listed on my Downspout Comparison web page

What metal is best for these decorative funnels?
Silver: would be great, but far too expensive of course, so we have not had any inquiries for a sterling silver custom sheet metal work, but I'm sure it could be done.

Lead: is a thick soft easy to work with metal that can be cut with just a pair of scissors and shaped with bare hands.  It can be custom shaped right on the roof peak without any special tools, so many building contractors like this option best, but of course it is not very durable for use as a scupper and hard to seal the seams well.

Copper: is clearly the best option here.  It is a metal that is meant to be seen.  It will tarnish within a few months to a satin dark brown.  It actually takes nearly half a century to turn that chalky green depending on where you live.  This dark earth-tone look makes copper a lot more appealing to most people.  It will also stay clean, since it will not mildew.

The cost difference of cheaper metals is marginal with this sort of custom work, since it is typically only 10% of the cost for custom fabrications like this.  To help minimize cost; the standard in the industry is 12oz or 16oz copper. The thicker 20oz copper I use for custom work is very good for archival quality to last for well over a century, unlike the old scupper shown above. It is sturdier, which is more dent resistant as well.

Warning: Other sheet-metal shops may say they use copper, but it usually is only a very thin sheet copper, or worse: only copper plated or painted steel.  Solid copper will not attract a magnet, so it is easy to test for this deception, although it may be too late by the time you have it to test.  Copper thickness is different that steel gauges.  It goes by weight per square foot. If they say it is 24 gauge, that may mean it is only copper plated steel, and still very thin. The 20oz copper we use is about twice that thick.

Stainless steel: is a good strong metal that will last, but it remains that shinny mirror-like finish until it mildews.  Since it is about the same cost of copper, with out any anti-fungal properties, it is rarely requested, but strongly pushed by other sheet-metal shops for reasons listed below.

Warning: Other shops will push stainless steel like it was the best thing on Earth.  Especially for chimney caps.  That is because stainless steel is quick to fabricate, since it can be simply spot welded together.  They also do not need to worry about finger print oils making the metal surface tarnish irregularly.  You need to beware: they will talk about stainless steel, but actually substitute with galvanized steel to unsuspecting consumers, since that client will not see it start to rust for about a decade later.  Well past most warranties.  Or parts of it will not be stainless steel like the screen or the bolts.  You can test this with a magnet. Good stainless steel will not attract a magnet.

Aluminum: can be used, but anything is only as good as it's weakest link. Aluminum is normally painted to make it less brash looking than galvanized steel or stainless steel. It has a good baked on enamel finish, but that still only has a 20 year life span at best. It will still hold water for many decades later, but it would look quite shabby with mildew and will dent easily.  It would may cost more to have it stripped down and repainted than to have a new scupper built.  So because of these issues; I do not have many clients even ask about this option, since it would only shave off $6 per square foot. Here's a set I made for a gutter client in 2007:

Galvalum: is better than galvanized steel and stronger than aluminum, but again it is not worth the minor cost difference of copper when most of what you would be paying for is labor and freight, so we do not even offer it as an option.

Steel: is a strong cheap metal, but it will rust through far too soon to be practical and cause rust stains below if not replace before this happens.  Besides, the savings to you is marginal, since most of the cost of custom work like this is the labor and shipping.  It would save you less than 10% off the cost of using the thicker 20oz copper we use. I do not even offer steel as an option, because it goes against my ethics.

Delivery & installation?
I work hard to design these scuppers to be strong, easy to install and re-installs easily with the stainless steel screws provided when re-painting the house or other service required.

I would be happy to install the scuppers for you if you are fortunate to live local to the Portland Oregon Metro area, but I've been getting most of these orders from clients across the Nation through this Internet exposure.  If you are not close to us and you are not able to install it yourself, you will need to hire a local contractor to do the installation, since I am not licensed to work outside Oregon.

Over the last few years I've been successfully shipping custom copper works in large custom wood crates to clients in all corners of the continental USA and Canada. Through the fabrication process I will send you digital photos of the progress I've made over e-mail before shipping, and I welcome your feedback.

A few Design Options and Cost Examples to Consider

We do not stock any of these in anticipation of an order. They are only made to order. We are happy to customize these to your needs. We have a $200 minimum charge for any custom work like these, which  runs $60 per square foot of copper used for the outer shell based on the final weight. The copper liners are $25 sq'. I highly recommend, if not insist these have liners for better function and durability, which oddly is a detail you're not likely to get from any other fabricator. I offer discounts for volume orders over 10 units of the same size and design.

Diagrams #2, #3, and #4 have a little more ornamentation added to center.  If you have a different idea of how you would like it shaped or what size you need, feel free to write us an e-mail, including any digital diagrams or photos that may show us what you have in mind, so that we can better quote you a price to get you just what you want. We can form curved surfaces, but that does add to the cost.

Some different variation of scuppers I've made
(from simple to more ornate)
Note: remember that you can click on each picture shown to get a closer look

Funnel 5 Facet Funnel/Scupper:
for flat roof outlets, or a more decorative funnel. Has a rim bent over the top edge for added strength.

Measurements for 2X3 DSP:
8.5" wide, 5.5" deep, 13" tall

Measurements for 3X4 DSP:
12" wide, 8" deep, 12" tall


Made in copper or 30 colors for aluminum parts

3.25" X 10" Super Outlet

A common misconception is how it really does not matter how big your gutters are. If the outlet is still the same small size it will clog just as quickly. So it matters more how larger the outlet is. With a larger outlet the debris can make the transition into the DSP and can be caught in the Leaf-catcher down where you can reach. This way the gutter will continue to function. This 10" wide custom outlet w/3X4 reducer to a standard 2X3 DSP installed aded $70.

Pair of 3X4 to 2X3 Reducers
& 2X3 Funnel

I have templates designed to form these adapters in copper or painted aluminum. This assembly converted over 24 cubic inch displacement of these 2 gutter outlets down to just 6 cubic inches for a standard 2X3 DSP with little to no risk of a clog. For these 2 reducers and funnel installed added $130, but saved on having less DSP.

Super Outlet Trays

I custom make these scupper/trays that
narrows from 9" down to 5" wide at the house w/reducer installed for $25 sq' of 20oz copper used to make them. They are open at the top to be able to clear them out if needed.

A small 10" Wide #1 Style Scuppers

This scupper was a set of 3. The cost was $248 each installed in 2008. Here is a link to see more pictures of how these are fabricated:

Small simple 9" wide corner scuppers I installed locally - $250 each

PS: I recommend against these round downspouts for several reasons, as listed on our Downspout Comparison web page

Design #2 & #4 shown in 20oz copper w/o internal liner

This leader head to the right is from design #2 for a local client in Salem Oregon (6-04). This one shown was a set of 2 leader heads made for 3"x 4" copper downspouts.  The cost of this of scupper was $350 installed.  I was also contracted to polished and add a clear enamel top coat to keep it looking like this, for an extra $100 each.

The photo below shows the one piece top section of design #2, with a gutter section it's sister was made from.

A Large 39" wide Scupper - $500 delivered to The Hamptons, NY
Note: remember that you can click on each picture shown to get a closer look

This Leader-head was created for MasterPlan Construction (6-05), a builder in the Hamptons of New York. It is a rather large scupper; at 39" wide x 18" deep and 22" tall.  It took several e-mails to work out the details and pass diagrams back and forth, then 3 full days to build this and make the wood frame crate for safe travel. They got quite a bargain at that. We also added a copper 3"x 4" Leaf-catcher and all the rivets, stainless steel screws and mounting hardware for the 2 story 3"x 4" copper downspout. The crate with the Leaderhead and Leaf-catcher and hardware weighed just short of 70lb.

You can click on the photos here to go to the design and fabrication web page for this leader-box where you will see many more photos of it's design and construction.

Fancy 5 sided 14"W Scupper Recreations - $500 each installed

After 6 years was finally asked in 2008 to recreate the look of a classic scupper I had removed back in 2002. The old scupper was 17" wide, so I had to carefully scale it down to fit the 14" width this client wanted to go on his remodeled house I installed new copper gutters on. He had me build 5 of these w/liners for $500 each.

Other Types of Built-in Scuppers for Flat Roofs and Valleys

The Auerbach Roof Drain Channels (4/09)
Sebastopol, California

This set of 2 decorative diverter trays I made out of a thicker 48oz copper to hold a set of rain-cups without the need for a wood support underneath. They were ordered through SYMBIOS, a contractor in Occidental, California for their client. They made this cardboard full size model and sent it to me to work from, so it would be sure to fit just right.  The total for these two custom scuppers was $450 with shipping.

The 24 Mahaffy House Roof Drains (8/06)
Oak Hills
, California

These built-in scupper roof drains were made for Kevin Mahaffy.  We passed around 50 e-mails w/diagrams back and fourth over the course of 7 months to work out all the details of this order for these custom products; going over size, shape, and metal thickness (am not one to rush a client). I sent him samples of copper to feel.  He ended up going with a thicker 32oz copper for the bottom and sides for added strength, so no wood structure needed to be made underneath for support. The top cover and upper flange was made with just the 20oz copper I normally use. The total for these 24 custom scuppers was $5,808 delivered, which is just $242 each.

The Mitchell Front Entry Roof Drains (7/05)
Albuquerque, New Mexico

These built in scuppers along with some decorative fascia board covers were for John Mitchell.  We wound up passing about 40 some odd e-mails and several diagrams back and fourth over the course of about two months to work out all the details of this order for his entry roof he was building.  This total for these two custom scuppers was $385

The Stevenson House Roof Drains (11/07)
2397 S. W. Montgomery, Portland, Oregon

She had me replace 2 built-in scuppers seen here, so they would last beyond the 50 year roofing. The last repairman had covered the rusty steel with aluminum foil (used for cooking) as a fix to keep it from leaking into the house walls, so of course that did not work. I could not believe my eyes when I saw it! By that point the rust holes under that foil were large enough to pass my fist through.

This is a custom aluminum scupper we fabricated for a customer who has an unusual situation for a drain on a flat roof.  We took the rusted steel sample he brought to me to build this from.  It had some very special angles to it as you can see.

There is a blue square 5 gallon bucket just behind it to show some dimensions to this scupper.  The old rusty scupper is sitting on the blue bucket.

Here it is from a different angle.  You can see the rust on the old scupper

Decorative & Simple scuppers I made in painted aluminum

Here was a set of 4 custom white painted aluminum 14" wide scuppers I made for a client here in Portland Oregon in late 2007 for $300 each installed:

To see and read more about this project and see all 40 photos go to:
http://copper-by-design.com/cw/Stevenson.htm

This is a custom aluminum catcher basin to catch the rain water from a narrow valley.  It was made from a short straight gutter, with each end mitered, instead of just slapping on a pair of end-caps.  We flattened the back side to make the bottom a bit wider and made a new higher back side.

It has a 3.5" x 4.5" funnel mounted in the bottom as the outlet, reducing into a standard size downspout.  There is a double 'A' offset elbow right under it to divert the rain water back to the downspout on the siding. This sort of scupper runs only about $140.

We didn't need to go to this trouble, but it just makes it look a little nicer, without going to too much trouble like the scuppers shown above.

This is a custom aluminum catcher basin to catch the rain water from a different kind of narrow valley.  It was made from a straight 3' gutter.  Again, with each end mitered, instead of just slapping on a pair of end-caps.  It has a 3.5" x 4.5" funnel mounted in the bottom as the outlet, reducing into a standard size downspout going straight down the corner of the house.

The cost for this was calculated from the basic cost of the gutter needed to make this: $15, + the cost of mitering 3 corners: $120, + installing this funnel in the bottom: $50 = $185 total installed

This was the finished product from the wishes of a customer in West Linn Oregon.  He wanted to have the gutter split in half, and dump into a basin of some sort.  Knowing it would look terrible, and we would have no place to attach the basin to, we came up with this one piece unit that is also part of the gutter it's self.  We covered the top of the basin with a screening to keep the critters out, but we wanted to leave it accessible in case it needed cleaning.   It then goes into a large 3"x 4" downspout pipe, which is twice the size of a normal downspout.

The extra cost was around $550 installed for the 4' of gutter: $15, + 4 corners mitered: $160, + installing this large funnel tray under it: $300, + the extra large funnel under the tray: $75

This was the finished custom product for the downspout feature for a gutter over the back deck on a house in South West Portland Oregon.  As you can see from the glass sliding doorways how the gutter on the back deck was so low, it was just higher than a tall persons head.  We came up with this one piece unit to keep the down spout up as high as possible, since the headroom clearance was at a minimum.  I had to design it open at the top, since there is so little slope to it.  It then goes into a custom 3.5"x 4.5" downspout reducer that funnels into a standard 2" x 3" downspout.  the picture below shows just one side of the gutter over lapping into the custom tray.

We charged about $150 extra for this custom scuppers, instead of normal downspouts.

My First Scuppers Made in White Painted Aluminum (1996)

This is a set of scupper we were contracted to recreate back in 1996 out of pre-painted aluminum.  They were for the outlets of the flat roof on an apartment building at 23rd N. E. Broadway in Portland Oregon.  We recreated this form from the original rusty steel scupper basins that were there on the building.  As you will see on this web page, we are able to fabricate most anything you can imagine, where the local suppliers do not carry anything ornate like these.  All they stock is a simple straight V shaped funnel with a squared off rim at the top.

This scupper funnels into a standard 2"x 3" downspout.  It is about 14" across the top, and sticks out about 7" from the brick wall.  The lower rim is about 9.5" wide.

We do not work much in aluminum any more when this sort of labor is involved, since copper would only add $10 to $20 to the cost, it seems silly to invest all that effort into an aluminum scuppers that would dent a lot easier and is prone to scratching and general paint failure. Copper has been the preferred choice of most clients, but that also means you will need to have copper downspouts as well, which increases the cost of your project a good deal.

Other Fancy Leader-heads I could make

Here are some more examples of fancy styles that were made in foreign lands by slave labor, but are no longer available. They are examples of shapes I could recreate, so if money is no object these are options to choose from in any size that would range from $500 to $900 each depending on the details. Contact us for specific current costs for the details and sizes you need. 

.

A few other scuppers I installed, but did not make

A small 9" wide scupper

These scupper were soldered together the old fashion way.  This use to be the best way to seal copper, because they did not have the kind of advanced caulks we have today. The old copper scupper below was made of a paper thin easy to work with copper sheet-metal.  It was a little dented up along the top rim, but no evidence of a major impact that caused the solder joints to crack apart. Also wear from rain and debris it had actually worn holes clear through the side walls of this thin copper used to make it.

A larger 18" wide scupper

Because of this evidence; we installed the large scupper above with a simple copper funnel insert inside as a liner, to funnel the water smoothly into the outlet in the bottom without wearing the thin side walls of the new scupper the client had sent away for.

Ordering Details

Lead Time
This Internet exposure has gotten me a lot of attention and I'm likely to be booked out several months with projects before I could begin the actual fabrication of your project after we've locked down all the details and received your deposit. So be prepare that I will not be able to deliver your custom project in short order. It's simply on a first come - first serve basis. I insist on at least a half down deposit, so that you are locked in my schedule, and cannot be shuffled over by a more lucrative offer.

You can get a better idea of what my current work schedule is by going to Latest News page to find out the most current lead-time listed. If you are in a hurry; to expedite this process, some clients have sent in a $200 reservation deposit even before we were able to work out all the details, so that they would be scheduled next on my list of projects.  This takes the pressure off from making a hasty decision. I will refund 50% of that deposit if for any reason you changed your mind and did not contract with me, no questions asked. Click here for our contact and payment info.

I strive to check for new e-mail at least a couple times each day 7 days a week, and respond to those e-mail personally within 24 hours, so working out the details should go swiftly.  I do have a toll free phone# listed on our Contact web page that rings my cell phone, but I do not quote prices for custom work over the phone. That process may take me several hours to do the calculations if I have all the measurements, diagrams, and clear photos from you to work with. Also, neither of us would then have a written record of what was said, so it is important to have received an e-mail from you with your requested project details.

Time:
I have no control of the shipping time, other than to charge you a lot more for 2 day or over night shipment, which can cost more than the custom copper fabrication.  Most of these ground shipments have not been taking more than a week to get across the country, so it hardly seems worth the cost of saving a few days. I've rarely had had a client who was willing to pay that much for Express Shipping.

Payment:
I do have a Paypal link on our Contact web page, but that is not any quicker than mailing a letter with a check in it, and I will not get charged 5% for using Paypal, so just mailing a check is my preference.

Prices:
Prices vary to fit your needs for custom fabricated items, but our prices have been known to be quite reasonable.  A rough idea of the cost is between $25 to $65 per square foot of copper sheet metal needed to fabricate your project, so that can vary a great deal.  It depends on the complexity and size of your project.  Size can be a key factor here, as truck freight is a lot more than just FedEx Ground. If it is more than about 30" cubed it has to go truck freight.

Minimum Order:
$200 on custom work and $100 on stock type items found mostly on our Shipping web page.

Scupper Sizing:
If you are having any trouble visualizing what you need to ask us to fabricate in copper sheet metal:
(a) try taping together some cut pieces of cardboard in the shape of a scupper of sorts.  It could even be just different sizes of cardboard boxes.
(b) set it on the part of the house or building where is goes to get an idea how it might look. You can then get a much better idea if you want it any larger or smaller, or other details.
(c) from there you will be better able to tell us what is the dimensions of the scupper(s) you want me to make for you, so I can quickly quote you an exact price.

Why Copper Sheet Metal?
The reason I use primarily copper sheet metal, as opposed to aluminum or stainless steel is:
(a) copper sheet metal is a metal that is meant to be seen with it's attractive patina effect that darkens the copper within a few months exposure to the elements.  Where stainless steel remains a shiny eye sore.
(b) copper of course does not need to be painted, resolving any repainting issue.
(c) copper will not mildew like most any painted surface or stainless steel.
(d) I will work in stainless steel, but copper cost about the same, so clients have preferred copper.

Sheet Metal Thickness:
Most fabricators only work with 12oz or 16oz copper sheet metal to save cost and be a lot easier to cut and bend.  All of our custom work over the last several years has been fabricated with a thicker 20oz solid copper sheet metal or more.  It is so rarely used that I did not even know sheets of 20oz copper were available through my supplier until 2003.

I feel that since the cost of labor is clearly the largest part of the cost for any custom work like this, why not use a better material that will last and is more impact resistant? I have seen where those scuppers made in a thinner copper will get dented and even wore holes through the sides within a couple decades, so if they now need replaced they might as well have just used steel to make them, since they did not last any longer.

I also build a smooth funnel liner inside most of the scuppers I make to take the abuse of decades of running debris mixed in the rain water for this reason.

Volume Discounts
Yes, I do give volume discounts for orders of multiple units of the same design and size.  I've also discounts clients who aid me by carefully reading over these web pages to clearly and quickly convey their needs in their first e-mail in order to minimize the number of e-mails needed to iron out these details.  If you have read this far, you are off to a good start.  Feel free to mention this discount in your e-mail.
