How to protect gable end barge board without drip cap?


I installed Azek barge board on the front gable end of the house. Problem is, I can't get a drip cap over it without disrupting the shingles because they are old and brittle, so pulling the nails and sliding a drip cap in wouldn't be a good idea.

Any thoughts on how to get water protection up there some how?

The correct way would be to remove some roofing and install the drip edge.
That’s high enough and has a low enough pitch you won’t notice the patch.

Plan B- would be to Sawzall the nails and slip one in.

Where’s your light blocks?

How to protect gable end barge board without drip cap?


Hey..Thanks for the reply! Good to hear from you again.

Plan A - You mean cut back the shingles? Then replace just the edge? Not sure how to do that, but doesn't sound to bad. (Have to watch out though. Might end up going crazy and replacing the whole roof )

Plan B - This sounds good too (can't believe I didn't think of Sawzall...such a noob...lol). If I sawzall, would I then have to fold back the shingles to get another nail back in there? Maybe another option to secure them until I get to replacing the roof? How about galvanized crown staple? I could put that through the underlying shingle and the drip cap in one shot.

I'll have to post a finished pic. The lights are installed (what an experience that was trying to hold the light and twist wires 2 stories up).

many gable fascia board out there with no drip edge do fine without the drip edge,some guys use them some don't

if your shingles are that brittle your probably going to replace them in the near future,install the drip then

With plan A you would start at the top and with a flat bar “carefully” start removing the end shingles down the roof.

The problem with plan B- is with the Sawzall you will almost certainly rip up the roofing felt and with brittle shingles it’s likely that you may break a few. If you go this route use finest tooth metal blade and go slow.
If you cant lift the roofing up enough to nail the flashing you could just glue it to the fascia.
