Long ranch. Small mudroom/port jets out so the facia board of the roof goes right into the other roof (see circled connection at picture).

I imagine you run some valley flashing at the connection under the shingles and against the facia, but water runs down the facia in the valley and wisks behind it appears.

I'm not a roofer, obviously.

Can you post a picture?

That drawing isn’t doing it, for me anyway.

Sorry, can't understand your drawing. Are these roofs hip, gable, or what?

The fascia shouldn’t be touching the roof. It should be held up an inch and the roofing will pass under it and end at the wall

Uh huh. Ok. Well The roof stops at the fascia, so even if I trimmed the bottom of the fascia with a saw there would be nothing under it.

Given what I have in front of me, what steps would you take?

Custom bend some step flashing to go up the fascia then under the felt of the upper roof.

So cut off the silver drip edge on the upper roof, and flash the whole 90* bend like a slide?

When the flashing lays over the lower roof, shall the shingles go over or under it?

I wouldn’t cut the drip edge, I’d remove it and then reinstall it. Do you know how step flashing works? It will take about 3 pieces to get by that.

Nope I have absolutely no idea.. Not at all a roofer. Any advise would be warmly welcomed!

Look at this article and the illustrations on all 4 pages on how you terminate a roof into a wall. In your case you’re treating the fascia as a wall.

I know this is an old post, but I am hoping somebody could give additional information to the answer above. I have a similar situation. Do you nail/fasten the custom bent step flashing to the upper roof (nail through the drip edge and the bent step flashing under it) or the lower roof deck? What if you install 1x3 fascia trim alongside the fascia board? Should the bent step flashing go up between the trim and fascia or bent around the outside of the trim (and under the drip edge)? Obviously, you cannot nail the custom bent step flashing to both the upper and lower decks since one side has to be left free to move to allow for expansion or contraction of the framing/decking structures. Are there other options to flash this area? Thank you.

That old picture showed the storm and ice shield installed completly wrong.
It should have been installed even with the edge of the drip cap and ran up the rafter, so none of the wood or cap were exposted.
Step flashing is installed up the roof as the shingles are installed. Then the facia board goes on but make sure to cut it so it's about 1" off the shingles.

Do you mean that one side of the step flashing will run up behind the fascia board and be hidden by it? Sorry, I am not a roofer. Is there a picture or link that you can post? Thanks.
