"new Style" Drip Edge .....


Hi ...
a guy who works for me said he'd seen a drip edge on another job that had a raised edge to butt the shingles against for a finished look. This is only at the gable sides of course. I have never seen it. Does anyone know about it or has used it? If so can you please post the manufacturer and your experience with it?
Thanks .......

It would make a nice water trap to pin the water at the rakes and help direct it across the roof, under the shingles, where it's needed to keep the wood moist.
Like an "l" flashing on a wall. With or without cement to add to the moisture content.

Gret idea.

That was my exact thought!

We did it once on a church because it was there before and sort of necessary the way the shingles tied into a low slope pocket. REALLY bad design on a church built in the 60's. So we first ice shielded the rake, installed the shingles, and doped them between the shingles heavily, then caulked the edge of the shingles to the gravel stop. That was 3 years ago and so far no complaints. However I wouldn't do it again unless I had to again.

After reviewing the picture it looks like some sort of water channel, almost like a mini gutter. That's kind of like a edge detail on a tile roof...

Well I was going to upload a picture but it's too big and I don't feel like downsizing it.

Almost looks like a rake edge
from a barn roof turned upside down?
All I'm sure of is, it ain't what it's
supposed to be.

I just estimated this job and will be re-doing it sometime next week.

Seems sort of the same profile, but it's hard to tell from your photo.

Re: "new Style" Drip Edge .....


This happened to me a six months ago. Although my posts are few and far between, I sold a repair on the same type of poor design. The segmented drip edge/hidden gutter combo was leaking at every ten foot section on a two story doctors office. (4:12 pitch 400' total ) The repair consists of SBS mod torch in the gutter and up under the first few shingle courses. Drains are internal to the bldg.

As a salesman I sold this for 4K. No problems with 20" rain since then. Any pro's out there have a better suggestion? This one was quite unusual in my area.(Florida)

Thanks,

James

Is that an eye brow?
Or distortion from a wide angle lens?

You should see the rest of my estimate photos from that one. Man, there are slot lines going straight up from one another for about 4 rows at a time in some places and tons of nail pops.

I saw a SOB crew do style D with the drip up under the rake one time, it was interesting.
Ed, how about another pic or two of that roof, you wouldn't want to keep a beauty like that all to yourself would you?

Re: "new Style" Drip Edge .....


As you can clearly see, the house is not that much of a beauty.

I should post the photos of all of the defects I observed while measuring it too. Egads!!!

Re: "new Style" Drip Edge .....


Thanks Ed,I did a roof a few years ago in the winter that had three big barrels on it, using 50 yr. Elk was not much fun, but it did turn out really decent. Maybe having to take more time because of the cold mornings accounted for the nice turn out.
