    Default Attaching fascia to unevel roof

    Don't you just love renovating old places

    One of the corners of our house is about 100mm higher than the rest of the house, when I replaced the roof in this section I blindly replicated all the rafters without checking the levels of everything (lesson learnt).

    The problem I have now is that when I put up a fascia and make it level (using a laser) the wonky roof is now really noticeable, see pee below. If I install the fascia un-level (in line with the rafters) then it will be hard to achieve the correct gutter fall without it looking like a ski slope.

    Any clever ideas? I was thinking of cutting the fascia at an angle so that it fits snugly but this seems bodgy to me

    By the time you put the gutter on my guess is that it will hide a lot of the unevenness

    If the fall of the gutter is going the same way as the roof then alls good. But..... as is murphys law, no doubt it will need to fall the opposite way. The thing with working on old places out of level, they don't have to be right as in dead plumb level and square but just need to look right. 100mm is a bit hard to even make look alright though, polish that @@@@ i

    Thanks guys I guess you won't be abe to see much and I'm probably being a bit pedantic.

    Of course Murphy's law has prevailed and it slopes the opposite way. At least I know now why in the past water has always run "up" the old gutters away from the downpipes lol

    Use a taller profile gutter and it will cover it up, at least from normal standing aspect in the yard

    E.g. Lysaght Sheerline
