Yes you put drip edge all the way around. The starter row will be on the front and back not the sides. I always put alittle bead of caulk in between the joints of the drip edge over lap the drip about 4" the cut you make on the drip edge at the top on the sides cut the right angle because if you cut it to short it's looks like sh##

I always install drip edge on the entire perimeter.The actual footage for your project is 111' but the drip edge should have a lap of 4".So by the time you lap each piece at 4" you have eaten some extra metal.That is why I quoted 120'.After all the drip edge comes in 10' sections.

It has been debated about whether or not to put starters on the rakes/sides.I believe it eventually could contribute to the rotting of your rake line.That depends on your climate.Besides its 18.5' so that is about 6 shingles on each side.Multiply that by 4 and its 24 3-tab shingles and they come in 26 per bundle.So 1 bundle could keep your mind at ease knowing you won't have any possibility of moisture on your rake lines.

Which code do you want to use? IBC IRC, FBC, etc.....
I get this comment from a guy clearly in the hail zone area (specified by IRC) that still installs overlays.

I thought the topic was Drip edge? But now that you mention it yes I do recovers.It is allowed to install recovers in the great state of Florida too.Building codes for my area have a 2 layer max.

So all those recovers you won't do send them to me.I will even be civil and give you 20% and still put a 10 year workmanship on it.

Also I have always been decent to you why would you want to try and bust on me?Your reply about the lap of the drip edge as is the reason I mentioned the facts about the correct lap procedure.

I have respected your posts so why try to go there?If you would like to debate then call me @ 417-425-0622 and we can debate.I refuse to be bashed or play the game of ,post,reply,post,reply,post,reply and post.

The OP asked about the amount of material needed for his project I responded in a professional manner giving him knowledge and sound verifiable advice pertaining to his post.All this other junk is pointless to the OP.

And it states in my signature below that I will do recovers so no deceit here.

Here's another one for ya..

R905.2.8.6 Drip edge.

Provide drip edge at eaves and gables of shingle roofs. Overlap to be a minimum of 3 inches (76 mm). Eave drip edges shall extend inch (13 mm) below sheathing and extend back on the roof a minimum of 2 inches (51 mm). Drip edge at eaves shall be permitted to be installed either over or under the underlayment. If installed over the underlayment, there shall be a minimum 4 inch (102 mm) width of roof cement installed over the drip edge flange. Drip edge shall be mechanically fastened a maximum of 12 inches (305 mm) on center. Where the basic wind speed per Figure R301.2(4) is 110 mph (177 km/h) or greater or the mean roof height exceeds 33 feet (10 058 mm), drip edges shall be mechanically fastened a maximum of 4 inches (102 mm) on center.


Like I said, which code do you want to use?
You can come up here and try to do an overlay, but the code won't allow. I'm surprised you get away with it in Missouri.

As for the drip edge. I haven't seen a code on reroofs. New construction yes, but nothing about a reroof or remodel.
