    Default Drip edge

    How would you write this up. I think the roofer thought that a fascia was to be installed on this open rafter end designed house. The shingles are drooping in areas.

    I would just tell them that they used the wrong flashing, but that flashing is not required at that location anyway's (some may disagree). Also, once they install a proper gutter system, it may help lift the shingles slightly.

    Overall, I doubt that this installation will cause any problems, and it is better than inadequate overlap.

    The flashing is the right one, but the installation does not allow the bottom edge to rest on anything allowing shingle droop.

    Just write that the installation is improper and one partial fix would be to add that fascia. One high wind and there will be quite a bit of damage as it is now.

    That will not even take a "high wind" to do damage and peel the roof shingles back, that only needs one "low blow" for that to happen.

    Ted is correct, just state it is a very incorrect installation.

    Wayne,

    Question for you: What is the required ... yes, required ... nailing for roof sheathing in your area?

    I ask because most areas require that edge to be nailed at a spacing which would not allow "open rafter" designs.
