Quote:Here's what I did. Install a wide trim board to cover that gap, and mount it to the top of the walls only. Put a long rubber or foam strip near the top of the trim board facing the gable. Next install a long piece of metal eave drip to the gable so it's just above the trim board. Bend the eave drip down little so the part sticking out angles down a little. Now you have both an air seal, and rain diverter!When the roof is now pushed shut it will butt against the wall mounted wood trim, and the eave drip will overhang the trim, diverting rain around it!
