Our barn has a simple metal (aluminum?) roof. On windy days, we can hear the roof rattle, which means that the original nails are starting to give. I’m looking for any resources on companies that can repair roofs, or resources to help me do it myself. For the latter case, I would need to find safety harnesses and protection equipment so that I don’t fall to my death. Then, I can get up there with some roofing screws (the ones with the washers) and secure the roof.
I am also curious about improving the water capture ability of our barn roof. One side has a gutter and downspout that is hooked into our 2000 gallon tank. But, it’s just a simple hardware store variety gutter and I don’t imagine that it captures much water. Does anyone know of a gutter with a bigger trough and ability to capture more water?
