roof leaking behind gutters


...sorry...

how do you attach the formed piece of flashing "gutter apron extension"..?

I'm not trying to be a d!ck here, but I really would like to see this flashing detail.
If it can be done in a professional manner, I'm all for it.

Does it match the color of the gutters?
...and again...how is it attached?

You can attach it with finish nails (same used to fasten aluminum fascia covering) or zip screws.
The flashing itself and the fasteners both matching the color of the trim work (gutters/fascia coverings).

I didn't take your response as you being a d!ck, were both going to the same place, just using different paths to get there.

I don't have any pics of this detail, have only needed to use it a few times.

We mostly do copper gutters, but frequently use the detail Sly is talking about. We usually pop rivet it to the back of the gutter. We sometimes rivet it to the drip edge if the drip edge is copper.

With aluminum, we match either the drip edge or the gutter. As far as looking nasty, it's usually not very visible unless you've got your head stuck in the gutter.

Does anyone else do this I attach a 1x2 nailer at the edge of the decking then install the drip edge. It's always at least 3/4 of an inch into the gutter

I wish I had read your comment last fall. My tenant complained about lots of water dripping between gutter & fascia. Tried caulk but it only lasted until the first hard freeze. I put aluminum Z flashing under drip edge and over gutter lip to stop the drips, using metal screws to attach to to gutter lip. It worked but looked really nasty. Either gutters hung too low or drip edge was too short for the situation. Thanks for the tip.
