Too much under first row of shingles?
Hey so I've been deciding on what gutter guards to get and I'm going to go with a type that locks in the gutter and slides under the first row of shingles... I was also planning on putting gutter flashing on... Which you nail under the first row of shingles.. I am also moving a downspout to the other side of the house so I'm re pitching the gutters... Might use the hangers for that that you tack under the shingles... So my question, is the flashing and gutter guards and occasional hanger too much to put under that first row of shingles? They are all thin, but still seems like a lot

Not usually.

Drip edge and gutter protection systems are pretty standard.

Not sure what bracket you are considering but I would just use the ones that screw into the fascia board.

I was gonna use the ones that screw in but I already have spikes if I moved them up just a little chances are it would break through into the hole the spike was in... That or move it to the left or right some but then I have the old holes from the gutter spike showing

Good luck trying to get those spikes out without damaging the gutters.

Naw they are pretty loose... The spots I'm not using hangers I'm going to replace with screws
