The shingles on my roof overhand the gutters by 3 inches. It’s a real pain to clean the gutters when you have only about 1 1/4” of it ‘open.’ I just Googled it and while the amount of recommended overhang varies I found a 1” overhand mentioned the most. (For years I thought the overhand was OK as a professional company redid my roof about 10+ years ago.)
Any recommendations on an Easy way to cut off all that overhang? I need something easy as I haven’t been a ‘spring chicken’ for a whole lot of years and will likely have to do this on my belly. I have approximately a little over 120 feet of it I have to cut.
And it’s not 3-tab, it Owens Corning ‘Dragon Tooth’ so it’s pretty thick at the gutters with the starter course. (I think it’s called architectural shingles?)
With no support under it, a utility knife does not seem like the way to go, and very tedious, too. I have some large shears that say they’ll cut roofing shingles but on a test piece it was a hassle and I figure there has to be a better way.
I do have battery operated oscillating multi-tools that may do the job. Anyone use such a tool on shingles? If so, any inexpensive blade recommendations?
How about a recip saw? They seem to have too much of a chance of damaging the gutters, though, and maybe the shingles, too.
Not sure if a new tool is in the budget, but how about one of those mini circ saw tools I’ve been seeing?
Any ideas and tips are welcome!
