It should work. I would suggest sloping it a bit more than that. Murphy says that the "high" end will settle and before you know it water will be standing in it. It almost never seems to sag at the low point! just a thought!

finally started on project of rebuilding built in gutters. i didnt take slate of yet as its suppose to rain alot today and figured i could fix the framing before .. I sloped the look outs to match the previous slope of the house at about 1/2" per 20 feet. used water level and a 6' normal level to double check. Is this fine?
