Reroofing a shed: would you keep the overhang that was there?

1 more of a load of questions about reroofing our shed's gambrel roof.

Bought in ''98, started noticing water leak along front and back side edge as early as '11 (from branches falling on it?). Now replacing and dealing with the accumulated water damage / rot on some OSB, roof on side wall and T111.

1) There's a roof overhang over front door. Seems that's not all that common? Would you keep it? They extended the OSB out the foot or so, there's a strip of wood with aluminum around it for support / riigidity. There's rot on that overhang. They didn't use drip edge - so the OSB edge was exposed / inevitable that it gets wet?

This is NOT my shed, but just looking on the web, this was one of the few examples of an overhang over the front door of a shed (the idea is not all that common?). But it kept my security camera dry : )


2) While some of the OSX panels look fine, I am envisioning removing all of them - too tedious trying to remove all the staples (or bang them down?). but moreso, the overhangs on the sides / bottom are likely going to be different (larger?) than what's there now (other than that big overhang at the front. So just take it all off / OSB is one of the least expensive parts of this small project?

would probably keep it since it serves a purpose for you, not sure how many different threads your going to start on this project but you could probably just keep them in the original post.
