I live in NC and my house was built in 2007. Overhanging the shingles into the gutter is normal for every house in my neighborhood. No drip edge either; I guess they figure the overlap functions as a drip edge. I installed leaf filters and had to go under the shingles. The gable ends are the same way. At least three inches of overlap. Looks sloppy.

That is not in accordance with any manufacturer’s instructions that I have ever read.

Oh that’s the top of my awning. After the new gutters were installed when I opened the awning it rubbed against the bottom of the gutter. After I noticed it, I had to adjust the awning downward a bit to prevent this.

If you have a multi tool, you can use one of these hook blades to make it go faster.

Yes, I recently purchase one of these. What a great tool and idea! I would just need the blade and be able to cut a straight line. ;)

A hook blade in a utility knife could be used also.
