Asphalt Shingle Overhang


Could someone please confirm whether or not I need to overhang my shingles past the edge of the drip edge I am using (see attached pictures)? The overhang on the drip edge is 3/4".

Or, should my shingles be flush with the drip edge? Does the same rule apply to the eaves and the rake?


Yes, overhang to prevent wicking. 3/4"is fine.


Thank you, rooferama. The overhang on the drip edge metal is 3/4". Just to clarify, you’re saying I should overhang the shingles another 3/4" beyond that?


1/2in or 3/4in, unless in florida, code there is flush
