Drip Edge: How to Supplement

All good contractors know the importance of installing drip edge on the eaves and rakes. If you are installing it, you should get paid for installing it!

Photos of drip edge that is damaged, painted, missing and required by code, rusted, or have the gutters installed through it are all worth your time – trust us on this.

The manufacturers require the drip edge to be installed over the felt on the rakes. This means that if your roofing project has a drip edge visible on the rakes during your initial inspection and you snap a photo, then the carrier has to pay for it. To install the felt, the drip edge must be removed & replaced.

An average job to remove & replace the drip edge adds a whopping $500-700  to the claim total!

Here are some perfect examples of a photo showing the gutters are screwed into the drip edge and a painted drip edge:
