Before I jump to a conclusion


I need to know if our roofs drip edge should be positioned so that it extends over the gutters back and angled into the gutter? Our roof is a GAF Timberline.

Your drip edge needs to be over your Ice and water shield and under your starter shingle or your pro start, the drip edge should be over the back side of the gutter so that the water runs off the shingle the on to the drip then into the gutter( note the shingles should start right at the bend of the drip edge so the 45 degree angle is not covered for water to flow off of it) hope it helps

Your drip edge should first be installed on all eaves. Then install the Ice and water shield over the drip edge. After you install the rest of the under-layment you should install the rest of the drip edge on the rakes. When you install you starters and shingles, they should be installed 1/4" - 3/4" past the drip edge.

Hope this helps.

I usually overhang 1/4" to 1/2" so it doesn't droop when the shingles get hot. Maybe more the more shallow the slope is to prevent water from hugging the edge and running down the drip edge on to the fascia, behind the gutter Most drip edge now has an angle below the edge so there is no clean sharp edge for the water to drip clear.
