    ...uminous paint. Is there a decent product I could paint up the walls, slates, and cover the gutter to make it watertight ? The average stuff from Travis Perkins ain't going to cut the mustard, I don't think.
    Been quoted £5k to fibreglass it, but that seems.......extortionate. Is fibre glassing a job for the average peasant ?
    Obvious medieval design flaw here, which I can't do much about. Wide gutter, which narrows by the chimney, which gets blocked up with crap easily. Any ideas to sort it other than fibre glass, bituminous paint etc ?

    Thanks.

    Nearly posted something similar earlier - have a shed built below ground by 6" or so that has water coming in between concrete block walls and floor just like this.

    Been looking at liquid DPM, epoxy paint, liquid rubber or similar but it doesn't seem an easy one.


    In your scenario could you put a gutterline type liner in under the slated and partly up the wall?

    Possibly, but not sure how you would fix it in position, especially around the chimney breast etc.

    Hold your horses there Bob. Lead cannot be made in sections longer than 2 meters, due to expansion. This is the root cause of my problems, 3 joints, done in 2" steps, but these get overwhelmed when the gutter gets blocked. I'm with you on the tight git bit though....:LOL:

    You can get 3 layer bonded felt system , probably dearer than lead though .

  16. Just clean the gutter more often. Get a leaf blower and extension hose and blast it out once every couple of months.
