Drip rail installation

espoladyAugust 16, 2010

What all is involved in installing a drip rail along the roof of a trailer house? What size is recommended? Does anyone know of a place online with illustrated instructions? I want to make sure it's done right, and need to know what is all needed. How is it sealed so that the water goes INTO it and not down the wall, causing leakage and wall/siding problems???

Are you talking about rain gutters, or something else?

Yes, rain gutters.

I don't honestly know specifically, but is there even an inch or so of overhang that the inside edge of the gutters can sit under so water won't get between them and the place? Can you post a picture of your house or at least the interface area of the roof and sides?

There is about an inch of overhang there. Would it be better to use a drip rail or put gutters on?

If this link doesn't work, there's one under "Desperately Needing Opinions" in this forum as well.

Here is a link that might be useful: Our Mobile Home

Well, I have no idea what a drip rail is, so can't comment, but that is a pretty tiny overhang. You may want to ask different dealers what they suggest.
