cutting shingles to install gutters
I need to install gutters along one side of my garage. However, when the garage was last shingled (before I moved in), the shingles were wrapped around the edge of the roof where the gutters would hang.
I believe I need to trim back the shingles to install the gutters. What is the best technique for this? Also, should I install flashing before the gutters go up, and how is that done?
I've installed gutters before, but I've never encountered shingles wrapped around the edge of the roof line.
this is a peculiar way to provide a drip edge, wrapping it downward onto the fascia.
On a warm day, preferably, cut as straight as a line as you can, about 3/8" out from the roof deck, so it hangs out past the deck, then put in a galvanized dip edge and slip it up under the roofing material. You may also have to cement it in, unles you can get a small roofing nail through the metal into the deck, UNDER the roof underlayment, or "paper". depending on how brittle the comp shingles have become with age, it may be a hard job to do well.
