A home inspector said that there is no drip edge on a 18 year old roof and that it needs to be
installed. He said the roof has 5-7 years life left. The existing shingles are bent way over into the
gutters and a roofing contractor we had look at the roof said the drip edge is not necessary and
trying to bend the shingles up to install it would damage them and cause further problems.
So should drip edge be installed? If not how to convince this inspector that it would be a bad
idea to attempt to install it. The contractor that looked at it said he would NOT attempt to install it
because of the age of the shingles.
