help need assistance with bad roof design


I have a leak that I can't figure out how to repair. Second story roof intersects with with the garage roof about 3 feet from the peak causing a 3' x 8' long horizontal valley. that valley drains onto the garage roof. the upper roofs soffet is 2' and also rests on the garage roof. the leak is coming from where the valley drain onto the garage roof and where the soffet rests on the roof. How do you recommend I tye the two roofs together. thanks

A picture would be easier.
From what I gather, you have to flash the fascia that is under your valley. Common mistake, but that is just my guess. Not quite sure what you are describing.

I will try and get a picture of the roof posted. Its just a dumb design, gabel roof intersecting with a gabel roof short of the lower gabel roofs peak. creates a bad flat valley that has always been a problem.

I think you maybe correct, I don't think there is any flashing behind the facia.
Thanks
