HA! I heard you can calculate all that with just a framing square with all the numbers on it; way beyond me!
Rob R --- nice looking home,man! No gutters, metal roof; no maintenance! Has that roof been painted? Looks real glossy! If so, what product did you use?
A local farmer friend here was badgering me to paint his barn roof, same type of standing seam metal construction. I really wanted to tackle it, but the pitch was steep, and I didn't have the guts anymore to climb all over it with a harness like an organ grinder's monkey
Only the paint was faded and a little rust starting at the bottom. Also did not want to go through prepping the roof (power wash?) I could have sprayed it, but didn't want to get involved. Then he insisted on putting a half-round gutter on the back of his barn. Rainwater was getting under the back of the old hay barn, and finding its way to the front, which has a 2 car garage on a slab that's 18" lower than the back. That area was getting water in it. The guy has a backhoe and a dump truck, he would have been better off digging a french drain.
I told him, "You're gonna get ice dams, you're gonna get ice dams, you're gonna get ice dams!"
I put up the half-round gutter and he got whompin glacier ice dams which bent the hangers
