Question by lpines3: How do I stop rain dripping behind gutters from a shallow-pitched roof with no soffets?
This summer I had my asphalt roof redone but because the tiles now end exactly at the edge of the roof, it is slightly shallower than the gutters so the rain and melting snow drip behind the gutters. The gutters are also not flat with the sides of my house but rest on dentil molding on the front and sides and spaced small wooden blocks in the back, where the rain drip is the worst. My house is a small colonial.

I would say this is a faulty roofing job. There should always be a small amount of overhang to get the water to the gutter.
A possible fix (or a permanent one if you never get this repaired) is to put aluminum flashing (4″ ?) under the shingles to bridge the gap to the gutter. Hope this helps
