Parker, aluminum drip edging is used on roofs (especially shingles) whether or not you have gutters. The drip edge helps keep moisture from damaging the fascia and getting in under the roof.
In the rain belt down there you need gutters. Water running off the roof will create ditches and puddles under the roofline. Pay the builder for guttering and the drip edges.
