Help please: drip edge overhang


Hi everyone. We just had our house reroofed. After it's done, noticed the shingles run flush with drip edge with no overhang. What should I do since everything's done? What are the consequences by leaving them like that?

Also the roofer put nails on the lower skylight flashing pan which doesn't need any. Thanks for your responses!

Read though some of the older post under roofing.
It can rot out the sheathing, fascia, run down behind the fascia into the soffits and run back in the house and take out the sheetrock.
Nails in the flashing in the wrong place can cause water leaks on the inside.
These are all roofing 101 mistakes and never should have happened with any roofer that knows what there doing.
Find them on Angies list by any chance?

Agreed, with regard to the shingles position to the drip edge.
Not a quick fix after the entire roof has been installed.

Do you know the manufacturer / model skylight that was installed?
You may be able to re-flash the skylight fairly easily.

Was the contractor recommended to you via a referral site or company that offers workmanship guarantees (Home Depot or Lowes...)?

Simple and best answer would be right on the manufactures web site on install directions.
