Modified Bitumen + Gutter


So how would you replace a gutter if modified bitumen is let into the gutter and torched down to the inside back wall of it. That's not a proper intallation but I see that often.

Looks like he posted the wrong detail.
Cut the old gutter out, strip in the edge properly, Google has many detail pictures.
Hang the new gutter.
Simple

Actually I did, I just posted a TPO detail on accident. The process is the same, did you need me to google that for you also? If you can't be bothered by at least trying to find the information your self, are we really sure you have the ability to trusted with a torch?

Are you sure you have the ability to read? I still doubt that. I am a licensed roofer in IL you don't have to teach me on how to install new roofs because this is not what Im asking about.

Thanks PatChap. The thing is when I strip it, it will slope wrong directinon. But I think it's the only way. Unless I put some gutter apron/flashing under the membrane and into the new gutter.

Congratulations? You've proven you know how to get insurance and a $25,000 bond. Though I'm betting you have a limited roofers license which only requires $10,000 and you just don't tell people that.


Don't come in here bragging about licensing like you are in California. Then I might be impressed. You're in ****ing Illinois. A, "Pay some money, here you go." state

Wow that licensing sure is helping you out here isn't it? FFS cut the mod bit at the gutter pull the gutter down, install a new one. install drip edge and strip it in. Not so damn hard is it? New or old, the end result is the same.

I'm highly doubting your ability to actually do the work if you have to ask such a easy question on a forum. You sure you are not a homeowner?
