That flashing isn't installed correctly. The reason you are having trouble is that system is reliant on caulk to work. Yo'll be having this issue time and time again as the caulk fails randomnly along the length. The flashing should step flashing in seperate pieces, properly stepped, and embedded into the grout joint. here's a properly done image: http://dsbrody.com/wp-content/upload...d-flashing.gif

$3,200 doesn't sound absurd considering you'll need all new flashing, partial roof removal and replacement to properly install the step-flashing, grout joint raking to install embeded flashing and grout joint re-tooling to finish flashing install. Pretty labor intensive job...
If you don't want to have it re-done correctly then have tubes of roofing cement on hand and slather those joints up good and check on them every few months.
Life's too short...so enjoy it!
