    Hello and thank you in advance for any help you can offer me here! BACKGROUND: I bought a new home in Ankeny, Iowa last spring in a new development with a HOA. The home was a spec home, however, I went under contract when it was being framed so I was able to customize it somewhat and choose...

    Hi Everyone, If someone has a moment, I could use some advice. I'm shingling a shed roof. The length of the structure is approximately just under 9' with over-hang and drip edge. I'm on the 7th row and I'm using full shingles but the drip edge and/or overhang might not be completely flush...

    We're having to repaint some weathered fascia. I've bought the sander and am ready to paint, but my dad said that unless we get a drip edge installed here, it will just happen again. But everything I see online about installing drip edges seem to be geared toward shingle roofs. Looking at the...

    I just had a new roof installed. When the roofer nailed the shingle at the drip edge on the rake end, he missed driving the nail into plywood and drove it into the overhang of the drip edge. After he pulled the nail, you could see the hole in the drip edge from the ground. Is this going to be a...
