Diverter

I need to get some ideas for a rain diverter. I have a covered porch with no eavestrough, and the water drips onto the steps. I need to make the water drip around the steps if you will. I don't think drip edge is heavy enough as I live in the north and am not sure it can hold up to the snow and ice. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have installed a short section of gutter just over steps. I use no end caps and mount the gutter horizontal so the water drains out both sides. You can pitch it if you want the water to pour out one end or the other but I usually go level to minimize the force of the water hitting the ground. I've also made an "L" shaped piece out of vinyl siding trim stock or flashing material and attach at the eave to diver the water.

Just make sure the gutter is attached stoutly enough, going through the fascia board and into the rafter tails. Otherwise, the first heavy snow or ice storm is likely to yank it away from the roof.
