Can i install new drip edge over existing without taking the old drip out? regarding my earlier post i am trying to replace rusted drip without taking the roof apart.
The new drip may have to be custom configured to do this. If you do this, I'd also separate the two parts. Rust is contagious. However, I think that ideally I wouldn't do this in your case.
Is the correct way taking all the panels off along with the hip caps, take off and replace drip, cover the existing holes by applying new paper and then replace roof panels and cap?
I will have a section of hip roof that measures 20 feet at the base and replace the 2 drip sections.
what do i do with the existing holes? do i paper the entire section and if so how do i seal the ends?
Thanks. I would suggest replacement as described. That said, if you can come up with more creative ways that make sense, I think that would be good as well. Yes, new underlayment should be installed. I am not sure what you're referring to as the "ends". I am sorry.
