We had an insurance claim for a new roof and gutters due to a hail storm last spring. We previously had the roof replaced, including new decking, for another storm claim in 2009. I noticed today that the new contractor left some of the old drip edge in place and put the new drip edge over the top of it. They said it was because our previous roofing contractor from 2009 had put new decking over the top of the old drip edge on that roof, which I confirmed is actually the case. I did not notice that issue at that time.
My preference would have been for the current contractor to at least cut off the old drip edge flush with the underdecking since they couldn’t get it out from between the two deck layers.
However, they’ve already put on the new drip edge. What should I do in this situation? Let them put the new gutters over the old drip edge? Ask them to tear up the first three rows of shingles so they can take off the new drip edge and cut off the old drip edge square with the decking? Other options? I don’t think insurance will cover tearing the whole thing up to put on new decking, would they?
