I plan on hiring a contractor to replace my roof next year, and I am looking for ways to help my existing roof last one more winter. Right now, there is no drip molding protecting my fascia, and along the back of the house, the fascia is quite rotten. I plan on replacing the bad fascia myself, and would like to install drip molding along the new fasia to protect it. Can this be done without removing any of the existing shingles? I looked at morethanacarpernter's site, and it was some help, although the illustration was a bit hard to understand.

The drip edge does not necessarily protect your fascia board. A metal or vinyl fascia over it would be much better protection.

One years time should not be enough to concern yourself. Do it all at one for the best result.

1) strip the old roof

2) patch all existing soft spots and holes. Replace rotten fascia board(s)

3) flash all valleys

4) felt all the way around and drip edge as shown at my site

5) starter shingles

6) shingle away

7) ridge and hip caps

8) Aluminum or vinyl fascia

9) gutters
