I would leave the Metal/Gutter Screens/Gutters alone.Hire someone to pull the first 2 courses in all areas that have inadequate overhang.Install 3 courses(One being a short course) and allow for proper overhang.

As its been stated you have improper overhang.New gutter screens have nothing to do with giving proper overhang,your gutters have nothing to do with giving you proper overhang.The only remedy for improper overhang is making repairs to provide proper overhang.That would be by adding a short course.

Mr. Master or whomever, what is your opinion of removing /installing shingles in cold weather, i.e. 30-40F?

Thank you

Thank you
You have to be a little cautious when doing any repair in those temperatures.Winter repairs and reroofs are successful all over the US so it can be done.

I like doing repairs around 9am.The sun is your friend so take advantage of it.If the shingles are frozen they will crack when trying to repair if they are pushed/bent past any point during a winter repair.

I would make sure the sun is up and has been up on that area long enough the shingles are able to be bent and are flexible.Doing so will limit the collateral damage.(Damaging more than you intend on repairing)

I am sorry but I am going to have to disagree with the suggestion that gutter screen would not be a reasonable fix until spring. The gutter screens act the same way that inserting flashing between the drip edge and the shingles would work. This is a way to hide a problem, as opposed to flashing sticking out from under a shingle. It was asked for a reasonable fix until spring. I am sticking to my original answer. If the question was asked as what is the proper way to fix this problem permanently then yes, shingle replacement.

I can see your logic but the gutter screen installation isn't a guaranty that it will stop the leak.If the entire gutter line isn't leaking into the sofitt why would the OP have to replace the entire perimeter ? Why not do the repair on the area that is leaking.

Doing a repair in that location only is a 99.9% success rate versus the "It might work" approach.
