Not once does the irc does it ever say drip edge.

This is all it says on the matter.

What year is that quoted from? I have a book from 2009 and I can't find your reference. My book numbers go from R905.2.8.4 to R905.3

We always use it.

And I was getting a framing inspection at 4 today. So I asked the inspector about it. New York revised it to say "flashing is to be installed to manufactured specifications" 2 months after switching to the 2012 book (along with several other states) because there are too many problems with how they wrote it. It also doesn't say anything about nailing.

On top of that, who ever wrote that in the first place clearly has never torn a roof off and got the the last nail in a stick of drip. Because if they had they would be ok with 3 nails, because it's clearly not going anywhere.

I install for a few hackish roofers as well as some really decent GC's that put out a nice product and all of their roofers just staple the ice and water to the fascia before i put gutter over it. Some will cover the and ice and water with a 2x2 metal but very rarely do i see drip edge. The rakes they just bend a 3/4 reverse bend at top to act as drip edge along rake. My friend is the local building inspector going to have to pick his brain and see what the deal is. Also ive never heard him ever mention doing roof inspections as far as checking for drip edhe

Im picturing a flying gable rafter with no solid blocking or ladder framing up the slope. I can see that sucker twisting like crazy a year later.

Re: Drip Edge Problem. Advice Would Be Appreciated.


im guessing alumn drip edge. that junk looks like an ocean if nailed too tight.

whenever we have to use it, we install it like vinyl siding. we have a punch that

makes a slot and allows the drip edge to move.

we use steel whenever we can though.

Yep, use steel and not aluminum.
It's not strong enough to stay straight.
