gutter apron extension
My 1930s bungalow has a hip roof without an overhang. New shingles installed 3 years ago with a drip edge. Water is leaking (I think) from behind the aluminum fascia, down the inside of the wall and dripping off my sill plate into my basement. On this site someone recommended a gutter apron extension to fill gaps between the drip edge and gutter--I do have gaps in various locations. These locations correspond to where water drips into the basement. Three gutter companies have looked at the problem; two suggested installing a gutter apron over the drip edge; one suggested bending the drip edge out away from the fascia. Will either of those solutions work? None of the three companies have heard of gutter apron extensions. BTW, I also had 3 roofing companies look at the problem. An ice dam material was installed with the new roof, and I believe it extends up 3' from the roof edge. The roofing companies couldn't find anything wrong with the roof. Do I need to insist on the apron extension?
