drip edge


I need to put some drip edge in above my gutters because some water is getting between them and the roof. My question is, how do I install it without damaging the asphault like shingles? There are 2 layers on the roof.
Just not sure how to wiggle a nail in there. Can I use some construction adhesive?

Do it on a really warm day so you don,t break the shingles.It really shouldn,t go anywhere with the weight of the shingles on it.If you are concerned about that put a screw where it kicks out toward the gutters and a dab of caulking over the head.
