First I thought it would look alright but on closer look, I see the gutters are not just behind but under the drip edge and have the exposed facia.

  • While I paid with CC and can just charge back the money for the installation, how would you suggest this to get addressed now?

To be clear I am talking about functional issues, or any problems this may cause.

  • Get what addressed? Are you asking about aesthetic or functional problems? (Contractual disputes are off-topic for this site, so only ask about fixing the problem, not coercing someone else into doing so. :) ) – isherwood Jun 7 '19 at 13:26
  • Sorry to be clear, mainly concerned about functional problems this may create. I can deal with aestetic and will handle that with installer, just wondering if that creates a functionality issue? Some other contractor who messed up work and was back kept trying to tell me the whole roof job was messed up witht hat, of course do not trust him one bit. – John Jun 7 '19 at 13:29

    Well, does water go where it's supposed to or not? Get your hose up there. :) For the record, gutters rarely stay entirely behind the lower flange of the dripedge. Because they need to slope, and because roofs aren't usually perfectly level, they necessarily drop below the flange. If the dripedge is installed correctly water falls off the edge and into the gutter anyway. – isherwood Jun 7 '19 at 13:40
  • It looked to go in there when it rained. Im going to put the paper to cover the floor behind some of the gutter areas I can reach to see if they get wet. Simply by having the fascia boards exposed it won't create a further problem or jeopardize the whole roof job (if water runs properly into the gutter)? I looked at some examples and the gutters there do not expose the fascia board and show such a large gap. Is this then just more aestethic or would you change this any other way to prevent potential problems? An example that looks different : – John Jun 7 '19 at 13:44
  • Hard to say with what little I can see. I'd probably try to tilt the gutters down tight to the fascia just to close that ugly gap and hide the unfinished fascia. – isherwood Jun 7 '19 at 13:47
