Question

Connecting two roofs


Hi All,
I am trying to help a friend with a problem of joining two roofs. There is new construction that has a hip roof to join an existing oval roof. The oval is approx. 10 feet in diameter and 20 feet long. The problem is how to connect the two and carry the rain away. There is an existing 4" gutter on the dome but I don't think that will handle the added surface area. The new roof will have tile installed.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Connecting two roofs


from what I can see and to be the easiest is to install a back to back cricket.
