Question

Installation of gutter apron over existing apron


I had a new roof put on two weeks ago which included a gutter apron. The roofer recommended that the gutter company that works for him replace the aluminum gutters and they installed six inch gutters last week. Inspection upon completion of the gutter installation reveals 1-2 inch cuts, and slits that clearly had nothing to do with the mounting brackets. These cuts occur inbetween the brackets and then the metal apron is bent upwards while in other areas, the apron has been pushed flush behind the brackets. The roofer inspected the gutters and was shocked at the shoddy workmanship. His first idea was to put in pieces of black metal and zip screw them in place. However, the damage to the apron is quite extensive. He is now suggesting that we install a second roof apron on top of the other one so as not to disturb the previously installed ice barrier. Are there any foreseeable problems with this idea? My main question is whether adding a second layer of gutter apron would impact the functionality of the roof. Thanks for any suggestions.

It should make no difference if they install the second course of gutter apron correctly.

Basically, it is a piece of metal that attaches to the roof to help direct water into the gutter.
