End of roof too short


I have a workshop with a dutch style roof. The top point is fine, but the bottom edge was cut next to the wall. Is there a good way to keep water from leaking where the end of the roof is cut next to the wall? I thought of trying to slide metal flashing up unter the roofing tiles and let it hang down over the seam. Would that work? The roof leaks only at the bottom four corners where the roof is short. I have already tried to seal the corners with silacone. It still leaks.

I believe there's a minimum posting requirement.
Once you have enough post it's simply a matter of clicking on the 'Insert Image' button above.
