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.
I may go home hungry, but not tired and hungry.
You're probably not going to be able to do this yoruself unless you have extensive metal working experience. My only advice is to call an experienced metalworker who does custom guttering and or metal roofing systems.
The way I'd approach it is to have the carpenters frame a cricket or saddle to direct the water flow then I'd line that saddle with all grace premium ice shield then install a flat locked soldered seam roofing system in galvanized or if the bidget allows with copper.
Sometimes the savings that comes from doing it yourself can be blown away with one mistake.
