Roof detail by Nikola Rodic

Hello. I would like to transform my existing design into a more contemporary one with the concealed gutter type. Please check the sketch with the eave and new design with the concealed horizontal drainage. The roof is 45 degrees steep. House is located in the continental climate with possible heavy snows in the winter. Also, I would like to conceal the vertical part into the EPS facade which is 16 cm. Can somebody clarify for me exactly how these details look and how to ensure that there are no water leaks or thermal bridges on the facade. Thanks!

  1. Hi Nikola,
    basically, what you want to do is to minimize the gutter size, and maximize insulation depth, so you can have more space for gutter mounting, and placing insulation, as well. Considering your post, I believe that insulation depth change is not an option. With that in mind, the only thing you can do is to try with as small gutter size as you can find, and see what amount of insulation depth could be put over it.
