Hi, I live in a brick condo on the first floor (so I have no access to roof/gutters). I often have a water fall coming down in front of my door when we have serious rain. Is there any product I can purchase and maybe screw into the brick that would divert the water away from my entrance. At first it was just annoying to have to walk through to get in and out of my house. But I'm now realizing that this water is coming in slowly through my storm door (yes, I realize that may be an entirely different issue.....). I've seen rain water diverters that are installed to the roofing, but in my case that is not an option.

Anyone know of something that would work in this situation? Thanks!

The roof is the right place to address the problem. Doesn't matter that you are 1st floor - Complain to the condo association.
