Hi All, first post. There is a ~3 x 5 FLAT triangular area over a porch on an old victorian in central IL. A steep valley exists above this and with heavy rain, the water flows over the guttergaurd and falls directly on to this flat roof. Icicles also drip and fall directly on this area. The area is currently covered with 2 layers of rolled roof, one really falling apart where the water hits but is in decent shape everywhere else.
Gutter folks don’t have a solution and said a barrier at the valley would move the spillover someplace else. I thought they could remove the gutter gaurd at the valley, replace it with mesh and add a barrier but they indicated it was too much water moving too fast and that the barrier would result in leaf build up and clogging.
I could replace with rolled roof again but am wondering if a differet product might stand up to the abuse. Also, any creative ideas on how to deal with the direct flow of water and drip from melting ice? I’ve considered a shallow cistern that could be tapped into the nearby gutter or even a small slanted piece of metal to deflect the main force of the water.
Still seems like a gutter issue to me but the roof does need replacement.
thanks in advance
