are the shingles not hanging over far enough for the water to reach the gutter? or maybe the gutter has slipped away from the fascia?
how old are they? did they work before? more input.

The gutters are too far away from the fascia and the drip edge, they have never worked, they are at lest 7 years old. Thanks

I have the same problem, installed new vinyl siding last winter, left off guttering, had huge hailstorm in May, didn't replace guttering. Now with new roof, and drip rail, water drips off fascia, so my question is, what good is guttering????? I have a 24" overhang on hip roof.
