After framing and sheathing an addition that covered a stair that led to the second story of a duplex, I installed a 2 1/4 crown between the fasica and roof sheathing. I stopped the sheathing short of the crown so that only the crown would appear instead the edge of the sheathing. In effect, the crown is the end of the roof. When I was ready to roof the addition, the drip cap, however, covered almost half of the crown that I just installed. After going to two different large roofing suppliers, the smallest edge on drip cap was 1 inch. I just ended up not using drip cap and ran my ice and water and shingles straight across with a enough overhang, but the edge does not look as finished as I would like. Any suggestions of a product that acts like drip edge but does not cover up fascia or crown?
