gutters for butterfly roof


Hi all you experts!

I would like some advice on how to put in a gutter system for a butterfly roof, the kind with a valley in the middle. Diagrams, good sources for supplies ie. scuppers etc., advice from anyone who has done this before; all advice very welcomed.

I would use a standard 4 inch residental gutter,preferable seamless.The middle section can be straight or level.The left and right runs should drop according to the lenght of the run.Down spouts should be at each end of the left and right runs.Depending on the amount of water running off the roof you may want to consider 6 inch gutters.Scuppers drains are used on flat roofs where the roof meets a wall.
