My garage is about 5 years old and I just became aware that it has no drip edge to keep water from migrating back under the roof shingles. The problem is that the shingled are very tight to the roof. Not sure if they are nailed too close to the edge or if stickey backing on the shingles is making them impossible to bend up in order to slip a drip edge in where it would do it’s job. I’m thinking I might be able to snip off some of the top edge (length wise) of new drip edge material so that it’s short enough, about 1 1/4″, and slipt under the shingles using some sort of roofing glue to lock into place. A contractor wants $1400 to custom make 4′ sections with a brake and face nail to the facia board. The garage is 24′ x 24′. Any pros out there who have an opinion? I’m greatful for any input.
