I can think of several ways to fix the problem - what did you decide to do? We recently put up a rain-catchment gutter on our cabin, and discovered the roof edge isn't level - also in the wrong direction. That meant the 'attaching blocks' had to be bigger to allow for the difference - making the job take a lot longer than planned.
