Drip Edge Gutter Flashing

gutter flashing

Drip edge gutter flashing  from the roof should extend beyond the fascia board by about 3/4 inch to make sure that run-off drains to the gutters. When the slight overhang is just too short, water will drip behind the gutters, leading to rotted roof sheathing and fascia, stained siding, in addition to soil erosion together with a flooded basement.

Repair by establishing sheet-metal drip edge gutter flashing, also called drip cap, that’s offered by lumberyards and big box centers. Slip the wide, flat flange in the material completely beneath the first length of roof shingles, as outlined. Ensure the outer edge stretches inside the gutter. Whether it doesn’t, pull the drip edge gutter flashing out slightly from beneath the shingles.

Secure the drip edge gutter flashing with roofing cement. Apply a continuous bead of cement along the top of the drip edge, then press down on the shingle. If necessary, secure the ends of the drip edge gutter flashing  with short roofing nails; just be sure they’re positioned high up under the shingles.
