what is this board ?


[QUOTE="Fix'n it"]i just looked at the shingles. they overhang about 1 1/2". would this not work as a drip edge ?

No. A drop edge is a piece of flashing that directs water to "drip off of it instead of running down the facia.
I have seen rotting facia on a 8 year old house because of lack of it.

yeah, i know what a drip edge does. but for water to drip behind, or even up to, my facia board, from the shingles. it would have to flow back up the underside of the shingle.

It does. A lot will drip off the shingle edge, but not all. Enough makes it to the top edge of the faca to do damage over time.
There not always installed, I don't think you have to for code in some places.
Just saying from experience that I think they help a lot.
Curious to hear a roofers opinion on it.

It can be. I haven't done it myself. One house I painted they had a GC come instal it after the shingles. They just lifted the edge of the shingles and slipped it in. The hard part would be screwing it down from the top, under the shingles. I think they put some screws in the face of the flashing in places where they couldn't lift the shingles enough to get to the top side.
I would imagine care would need to be taken to not lift the shingles so much that they break, but they are pretty flexible and not usually nailed down right at the edge.

This is a common problem. I would like to hear from a Roofer on this subject.
