    Good afternoon all, this is my first post be keen to see how quick I can get a response!

    I'm replacing an asbestos sheet roof to an external store room, with corrugated steel sheet. My question is at the eaves where the gutter connects to the fascias, how do I prevent wind driven rain tracking underneath the sheet (above fascia level) back into the building? I have asked around, have been advised either a)expanding foam b) corrugated eaves filler (its like a sponge material) and c) corrugated drip flashing

    I have my reservations about a and b simply because I don't think foam or sponge will fair well against the elements, I have never heard of c (or I have but can only find drip flashing where a corrugated sheet abuts a wall where this is not the case!)

    Any suggestions at all I will greatly appreciate!
