I have a 8x6 shed and building a framework so that I can have an
extended covered area, I will be using platic corrugated sheet for the
sloping roof. Is it possible to bend a lip at the high end to stop rain
running down the inside.
I have sealed a folded ridge sheet to box section roofing using
I suppose *light* lead flashing might form into the gulleys slightly but
I don't think you could stop wind blowing snow and light rain up the
gaps on anything other than a steep pitch roof.
Trimming the excess foam with a knife exposes significant voids.

I'm having trouble imagining where this extension bit of roof is going.
Is it an extension away from the side of the shed at shed roof eaves
level or an extension from a gable end of the of the sheds pitched roof
(assuming it has a pitched roof)?
You can certainly get moulded ridge pieces and I thing moulded to flat
bits as well. The latter would be used to butt against a wall with the
roofing sheet underneath and flashing into the wall and over the top edge
along the top of the flat bit.
Should be able to form lead to the corrugations without too much trouble,
but probably best to do in situ which might not be easy as the roofing
sheet isn't load bearing...
Domestic "foam in a can" I agreed more voids than swiss cheese. You can
get foams that are much more uniform and aimed at the commercial/trade
market, the low expansion ones?
You could always use a roll of flashing tape to form a peak along the join
between the two sheets.
Removes a little bit of light but it should make it water tight and also
should be fairly mouldable into the corrugations.
Why is it that this stuff lasts for maybe 6 years then suddenly goes milky
and brittle? One would have thought if it were the UV it would happen
This Novolux will self destruct in 6 years, thank you for using it..
