Shed guttering

Postby paulz » Mon Aug 13, 2012 8:12 am

We have an all steel bolt together shed like this one
[ ... &ImageNo=1 ] it's sitting on concrete paving slabs, problem is the guttering or lack of.

The supplied gutter is more of a thin U shaped gully to neaten up the bottom edge of the ridged sheeting. It blocks easily and the water runs off all the way along.

If I want to add conventional guttering either side, am I best off screwing a wooden strip inside and out, to fix the gutter to ? or is there any easier way around this? Thanks all

Simply Build It

Cut some lengths of ply the same tickness as the corrugations in the steel section.
Cut the lengths into 150/200mm lengths and screw these onto the outside of the shed using screws from inside.
You'll then have a sound base for fitting conventional gutter brackets.
