Need to install rain gutters, I am a retired and on a limited budget.
When it rains I literally get a sheet of water coming off the roof. The red stars mark the area. It pours down creating large pools at the base of the house. What's worse is it's seeping into the rock and dirt cellar, were my water tank and gas furnace is housed. It appears the previous owner made an addition to by enclosing the back porch and cellar door. The small window is the bathroom's, it's floor is not level, has a noticeable slant and the toilet leans to the left. On the other side of the bathroom door, about about foot an a half is the trap door to the cellar. Which I think at one time was an outside entrance to it. That area slants towards the back door significantly. Why am I telling you all this? To give you an idea of the remodeling skills this guy had. Back to the rain problem. The blue trim is plywood nailed at points into blocks of wood attached to the house. Behind the trim he used pieces of shingle to fill the gap. He used some kind of foam sealant to fill the gaps. My question is HOW DO I ATTACH GUTTERS TO THIS? I am afraid that any kind of weight would pull it off.
