I see you are helping out someone on the board regarding drip edge and you seem to know what you are talking about so could you help me out too.
I am remodeling my backporch…the floor was a poor foundation and caused the porch roofline to slop down on the left side, also causing water to rush to the left hand side of the roof.
Gutter doesn’t sit behind drip edge so all that water was going behind the gutter and dripping on the ground causing lots of pooling.
Once it jacked up the roof and put new support posts the roofline was now level which should keep all the water from gushing to that left side. To fix the water dripping behind the gutter I put a gutter apron flashing over the existing drip, up behind the shingles, and hung the bottom of the apron directly into the gutter.
this solved the problem of water getting behind the gutter…however I am still geting water dripping from somewhere.
I went up on the ladder today when it was raining and watched…the aprong is working and the flashing behind the gutter was dry, however it appears that water is actually traveling up the backside of the shinge and dripping down behind the drip edge…causing water to actually get behind the fascia board flashing. You can actually see water pouring out behind the flashing.
the plywood roof under the porch is exposed and there is no leaking there. If i put the ladder inside the porch and reach up and touch the backside of the fascia board it is soaked.
I took the gutter aprong flashing down thinking this perhaps made the shingles raised too much but still getting the same problem. Thinking I should seal the gap between the shingle and the top of the drip edge with gutter sealer.
I put some photos of the problem on photobucket at the link below…could you tell me what I am doing wrong.
Thanks in advance
