    Default corrugated window canopy

    Hi,
    I'm in the process of replacing the rusted window canopy of a queenslander with a timber one.

    The distance between the timber structure is 875mm. The overall width of the sheet is 845. Does anyone know if I can stretch the sheet?
    I'm thinking of putting a piece of timber on top and clamp it down to spread it. Has anyone done anything like this? Will it work?

    I don't think (but don't know for sure) that you'll get 30mm extra from a single sheet. Flashing the sides should cover the gaps and tidy it up nicely

    as said, you will be flashing the top and both sides. you will only be 15mm in from each edge

    I don't see how to integrate that into gable rolls

    Using gable roll the sheet edges should go into the roll, which is 25-45 mm more than you currently have both sides, so you have no choice but to buy another sheet and either overlap it full width less one corrugation, or, cut it back to suit.

    You will just have to add another small piece of roofing to make up the shortfall in cover.

    I was just thinking regular right angled flashing on the sides. It can be cut and bent to your requirements at Lysaght etc

    Gable roll keeps with the Queenslander look.
