I have a standard galvanised Metal roof cover that I intend to fit on a roof I have made. How do other forum members seal the corners? as these have cuts in them from manufacture, Can I try and solder galvanised tin ? any susgestions welcome.

Regards

A bit of silicon sealant should do the trick be generous though as you don't want to pull the thong apart in 12 months time. Remember to keep vents clear as no amount of silicon will stop the damp, those bees can really expel moisture during the cold.

Oops typo, maybe some of us do want to pull thongs apart - each to their own, I meant 'thing' - fat finger syndrome!!!
