Yes, but it looks better with the drip edge all around. And some rakes are not as straight as you might like, so D.E. can even out some differences. Tom Work at your leisure!

This is a lesson for all roofers...
1. Put out your shingle as a roofer. 2. Get a call asking for a quote. 3. Inspect roof and give quote based on hopefully being the lowest price and don't discuss any potential money making options. 4. Do job based on quote. 5. Homeowner inspects finished job and asks why drip edge was removed from gable ends exposing raw wood requiring paint job. 5. Roofer explains how drip edge was installed with second roof, on top of first roof. 6. Homeowner now has to paint, and is pissed that roofer did not offer to replace drip edge during re-roof, which would have made homeowner happy and roofer more money.
Trolling for moral of story.......
Thanks Tom!
