Hi Everyone, I am new to this, but I need some advice! I am in the process of getting a new roof due to hail damage. The roofing foreman had told me they were finished, but when I went up to inspect the work they did - none of the hail damaged vents had been replaced, and I noticed the old flashing / drip edge was still there and in many areas not even hanging over the gutter. I brought this to his attention and he said he would fix it.

After work I went up to look at what they had done and everywhere they replaced a vent they tore the shingles. They also peeled up the edges of the new roof along the gutter (tearing more shingles) and stuffed the new drip edge under it and over the old drip edge. The end of the roof now seems very loose compared to the areas they did not fix yet and the doubled drip edge causes the edge of the roof shingles to be slightly raised.

1. Is this double drip edge ok if they now replace the torn shingles?
2. What is the normal process of adding a drip edge if the new shingles are on? 
3. There are also foot prints in areas from them walking over the hot roof. Should I be worried about these footprints harming the life of the roof?

Thank you for any advise!

well as of the roofing contractor you hired they seem like the type to cut corners if they are skipping these small but very important steps. Your drip edge should always be replaced during the tare down stage. The company that i work for at least always replaces the drip edge. as to the footprints being on the roof id wait at least a couple of days to see if they go away. if not then get the contractor on the phone and tell him about the issue and try to get it fixed. It seems as tho these contractors aren't serious guys to deal with. The drip edge is usally striped with the tare down kind of boggles my mind. you have to pop some shingles off to get to some spots to replace the drip edge so if there isn't new shingles being installed after the drip edge is reinstalled then thats also not good. Let me know what happens im interested in seeing how this plays out.best of luck
