Roof Problem

The house has two leaks close to the outside wall in two rooms. The guy that did the roof did not install drip edge and did not let the shingles overhang the rake 1 inch. Can I now try to install the drip edge now that the roof is on and do you think it can stop the leaks? Do I also have to have the shingles out 1 inch over the rake?

Thank You

I had the same problem with my newly purchased residence. What I did was lift the bottom row as much as I could and put down a small strip of ice and snow and tucked that into my gutter.

It worked like a charm. Drip edge is only 3" and the metal will be a pain to install.
