Had to remove existing 5" k-style gutters for new drip edges to be properly installed over epdm cladding for solar roof (next phase of install next monday ... i hope). I'm considering replacing with 6" k-style to more effectively catch rain due to anticipated glass slickness and propensity for high velocity water to overshoot gutters. However it occured to me that 6" would be more prone to getting torn off by snow. 2/3 of roof is approx 42degree (11 pitch), 1/3 approx 30degree.
Does anyone have actual experience with v3 roof in snowy conditions? Does the glass tend to shed snow as it falls vs accumulate to significant depth, especially on a high pitch roof? If large sliding snow mass has been an issue did you install snow brakes or some other means to reduce gutter and landscaping damage from large sliding mass of snow off roof?
