Shingle overhang excessive

Not trying to beat a dead horse, but is this amount of overhang normal in some areas? Im in eastern north Carolina. The last picture is my neighbor’s house done about 5 years ago for comparison.

Yes it is excessive, especially since it has D metal on there as well. Probably trying to compensate for lack of overhang but is a wind magnet and will eventually probably droop.

That’s what I thought. I’ve lived in this house 11 years and the most wind I’ve seen was 70mph during a hurricane and maybe 60mph gust with intence summer storms. With my old 3 tab roof that would pull shingles off. I hope I don’t have trouble with it.

In our area we cut it flush to D metal on gables and barely hang it over on eaves. It wouldn’t be hard to cut back the gables on a warm day. Eaves would be a little more challenging and best left for a roofer to do if needed.

Just cut it . Use a chaulk line and wait for a hot day

overthinking,leave it alone.unless its eyesore for you,cut up in 5 months when it hits 70s
