I've got a standing seam metal roof and there is flashing on the fascia but there is no drip edge or apron and I am having a problem with runoff between the fascia and the gutter. What's the best way to resolve this? I don't think I can insert drip edge under the roofing material. Can I insert apron under the existing flashing to divert water into the gutters? See photo of gutter/flashing on wood siding area on right.

Thanks much. Beautiful home, gutters, and roof. It may be an optical illusion but the gutters appear to be tipped back toward the house. That concerns me a bit. Other than that, yes, an extra apron or drip edge can be inserted. I would try to avoid rivets or screws between the pieces of metal if possible. If you can see or feel the underlayment beneath the roof wrapped over the the eave edge of the roof, the extra drip edge should extend up and behind the underlayment of possible.

No eave is a big issue, also the panel's typically are run 1" to 1 1/4" past the roof sheeting to help stop water from siphoning uphill and rotting the substrate. The gutter's are hung way to low.
