synthetic underlayment is better for a long term project than felt. felt will get wrecked quickly. tuck it under the slate, stretch it out over the trough and tack on the front. always start the new pans from the downspouts and work uphill.

That is about it. Felt will do if you tack it down.

Assuming one cannot fabricate and install a new built-in gutter in a single weekend... obviously. It's not something I can finish quick enough to not encounter rain. Therefore, what conveyance is there for temporarily protecting the cornice/soffit from a shower or thunderstorm?

What can you do between the time the old stuff comes off and the new stuff is installed?

Do you guys have any tricks for keeping all that woodwork from having massive amounts of rain pouring in? Central Virginia - regular thunderstorm activity.

All I can imagine is some ridged sheets shoved up under the slates and extending out past the outer edge of soffit.

any thoughts appreciated.
