I am building a new house. The roofer did not install a drip edge along the roof before laying the felt and shingles. In addition, the shingles overhang by an inch or two. I looked at neighboring houses and they do not have a drip edge either. The aluminum fascia goes up to the shingles and then has been bent up and out away from the roof. With the shingles overhanging, it basically covers the edge of the roof and the fascia edge.

Is this common, and can't water still get between the shingles and fascia and lead to problems down the road?

that is rather odd. I have done plenty of roofs in my day and seen many homes and never ran across that, unless there is some fancy trick that I don't know about I would ask the roofer what the deal is. I am sure he will atleast give you some insight
