Metal Roof - Rain Diverter


Look at the outward tilt of this and you'll see why the rain spills over. Which I need to stop.

Are diverters sold pre-formed? This is that clay color.

Will have to mount atop the end cap, no choice.

Recommendations?

Seal with Geocel but screw on? What about a low profile dimension that will guide the water & without a bend in it?

This really need to be custom?

What have you gotten yourself into

Mounting a diverter to the top with geoseal and and small gutter screws would be fine. I'd make one to fit your situation, but thats not a big deal to do.

Can i assume this HO saved your life and now your stuck fixing his roof to return the favor.

This job has me thinking more and more about heaven, Andy, along with other things, seriously. I'm sure there's nothing wrong with it!

- I do hessitate to put holes in the metal, but don't think the cel would be enough, in and of itself.

Debating where to put the fold, how to end it off (if it is doubled up) or whether to try and find a strip of heavier gauge drip edge and reverse that. My tools are limited to aircraft snips, and a pair of vise grip style benders (about 5"width)

If your attaching to that rake trim use "tacky tape or buytl" and rivets........if your talking about putting a diverter on the panel itself use the tape or butyl inder the new pieces and woodgrip neos
