drip edge

3338 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  cbelchak
I recently got a tear off on my roof. The roofer put drip edges on the gables of the roof. The roofer removed old gutters. I plan to get new gutters from leaf guard. From what I can see there is no drip edge in the front and in the back were the gutters hanged before. The gutters have been removed, and you can see about two inches of overlap ice and water shield. Is it normal not to put any drip edges by the gutters. If at all possible what can I do?:confused1:

If the contract stated that you are to get drip edges, then the time to put them on is before the gutters go on and in fact they are usually put on prior to the installation of shingles. However, with a starter course of shingles and the ice and water dam extending beyond the roof substrate, you are unlikely to have a problem. The drip edge would be additional insurance against a problem.
What bothers me is that your roofer skimped on a relatively inexpensive item, probably to save time. I hope he did not short-change you anywhere else.
