Whoever installed the roof on my house put the bottom drip edge on top of the felt underlayment instead of below it. This is causing significant rot on my fascia and eaves. (I don't have any gabels.)
A new roof would ultimately solve this, but I can't afford one right now. Is this something I can remedy (or at least improve) on my own? If so, how should I go about it?
Update: This roof is shingled with architectural asphalt shingles (Certainteed Presidential). It's missing a starter strip. By "fixing" this, my first notion would involve getting the felt out from under the existing drip edge, either by:
- Removing the drip edge, and sliding it underneath the felt to reattach it, or
- Bending up the existing drip edge and sliding a new one underneath both it and the felt, or
- Cutting the felt just above the drip edge, and slide a new, wider drip edge above the existing one and below the remaining felt. This may also involve adding more felt above the new drip edge.
