My roofing contractor turned out to be a scammer, so I have to replace the entire roof. One of the many issues is missing drip edge.
I live in coastal NC and was hit by Florence. The NC code does not require drip edge but requires that the contractor follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions. I’ve talked to a few roofers that are certified for specific shingle manufacturers and all are required to use drip edge. They could not express an opinion if all manufacturers require drip edge in hurricane country.
Do all shingle manufacturers require drip edge in hurricane country?
Should the insurance adjuster have included drip edge in the claim?
Can I go back to the insurance company for a supplement for fixing the drip edge issue, which would include at least the removal of the old shingles, purchase of replacement shingles, installation of new shingles and installation of the drip edge?
Any other insights or suggestions on how to deal with the insurance company would be appreciated.
