Leaking between gutter and fascia board


I just had my gutters installed about a month ago. Today it is raining and I noticed a dripping between the gutter and the roof edge. I need to call the guy back. What should the guy have installed to prevent this problem?

Would have to see a picture to know the exact reason water was getting behind the gutters. However, installing a metal drip edge over the back of the gutters and under the shingles would solve your problem. You (or your contractor) can get the material at Home Depot, Lowes or any roofing supplier for about $3-$5 per 10' piece. Simple to install.

If the gutters are low,try an apron type as well.Something is needed between the upper rear gutter and the roof line.Also is it leaking or dripping at a seam(if not seamless)or a corner joint? Junction? Are they draining creating an overflow.

Do you have 2x3 or 3x4 downspouts?
