What does your contract with the roofer say?

It is much worse than expected now we are able to see it from the top.

As already noted, the gutter has nothing to do with it. The roof needs to be removed and redone...this would not be a DIY project.

Not the whole roof, just the effected sections.

You would be 100% correct. garage shingles are right over top of it. I just spoke to the contractor and he said his roofer removes the row of shingles on the house, papers it, tins it, and then papers it again before putting shingles on the garage. hahahaha. what a joke

I have the contractor and roofer coming over on Wednesday to "assist with making repairs" after the rain quits. Is their anything you guys can tell me, point out in these pics or let me know what points I need to drill them about to make them realize I know they messed up?

They know exactly what they did. No roofer in their right mind would ever just go over the existing shingles. It was gonna leak at some point, and it did. Your contractor sounds like a real pro as well. Imagine what the rest of the house has going on where you can't see?

If they were the ones that also caulked and mastic'd the crap outta your roof, I would insist on a roofer of your choosing do the work. It would really help if we could see the valley with some of the overlapping shingles removed.

To redo that you need to at least remove all shingles at least three feet out on both sides of the valley, install ice/water shield, then weave the shingles back into each other. If you don't see that many shingles removed then they are not the people you want fixing this.

If they have been on this roof before to try and "fix it and could not see the dozen or so mistakes it took me 2 min. to see and post what's the chances there going to fix it right this time.

Any shingle crew can mess up from time to time, there only as good as the lowest man on the crew.
But if the owner shows up and does not see what his guys did and not make them rip it all off and do it over right the first time he looked at there's something very wrong.

I have some of the info you need on this page. Not all maybe, but it should be enough if using an open valley. http://www.albertsroofing.com/Valley%20Details.htm
I don't like closed with 3-tabs, but here's how it's done. and a pic of open.

Here's how NOT to do it.


But, for your enjoyment, I also added a combo of open and closed fully weaved valleys on a huge roof. This last pic is correct for the application. I happened to find it while looking for bad work.

Great examples Frank. I'm guessing at best the OP's was done similar to the second photo.
