leaking where shed roof meets main house


With only your sparse description of the problem, i have to assume that you shed is very close to the house and your shed roof pitches toward the house, and that your basement is leaking in this area


Option 1: move shed away from house
Option 2: Put gutters on shed to Direct runoff away from house

I do believe what they are talking about, is a poorly installed "Shed" or Lean Too type roof that is attached to the house, not a storage shed.

Only way to fix is to tear the item that was built without a permit, and go get a permit to have built correctly.
