Drip Edge

Drip edge is a metal flashing or other overhanging component with an outward projecting lower edge, intended to control the direction of dripping water and help protect underlying building components.


Drip-edge materials protect the edges of roof sheathing from water penetration due to driving rains; the material is bent in a form that channels water away from the roof edges, thus protecting rake and fascia boards. The drip-edge material that extends past the edge of the sheathing supports the outermost edges of the shingles, enabling them to drip water while providing structural support so the shingles last longer without splitting or cracking.
