What is a drip edge?

Drip edge is a type of metal flashing that helps safeguard roofs from water damage. It is used in the eaves and rakes of roofing, as well as other places where two different surfaces meet. Drip edges are generally made from either galvanized steel, aluminum, or copper, and are shaped into an L-profile. The lower part of the drip edge projects beyond the roofing material, which helps channel water away from seams and shingle edges.

Why is it important?

Installing drip edge is an important step in protecting the roof and its underlying components from water damage. By directing rainwater away from the eaves, it helps to prevent moisture infiltration at the most vulnerable points of a building’s exterior, thus reducing the risk of structural damage. This metal flashing also enhances the aesthetic appeal of roofs and keeps shingles in place. Furthermore, it helps to prevent ice dams from forming along eaves during cold winter months, when snow accumulates and melts slowly due to inadequate ventilation. Finally, it is beneficial in reducing energy costs because it creates a barrier between warm air inside and cool air outside – preventing heat loss during winter and keeping your home cooler during summer. More importantly, it can provide additional support for your gutters, ensuring that all debris like leaves and twigs are prevented from entering and clogging the system.
