Why is drip edge important for my roof?

Updated: Jan 18

Drip edge is a small but important component of your roofing system. It is a strip of metal that is installed along the edges of your roof, typically at the eaves and rakes. The purpose of drip edge is to direct water away from the wood structure of your roof, preventing wood rot and peeling paint.

When water runs off your roof, it can easily seep into the wood structure of your roof if there is no drip edge in place. This can lead to wood rot, which can weaken the structure of your roof and make it more susceptible to leaks and other damage. Additionally, water that seeps into the wood can also cause paint to peel, leaving your roof looking unsightly.

Unfortunately, many roofers fail to install drip edge on new roofs. This is often done to save time and money, but it can lead to serious problems down the road. Without drip edge, water can seep into the wood structure of your roof, leading to wood rot and peeling paint.
