In investigating water leaks into a corner of my living room, I pulled off spanish roof tile over the area and found a lot of wet, rotten wood below the felt. Higher up the roof, I found flashing that collects/directs water to the bottom of a roof "valley". Unfortunately, where the valley cuts a corner, the flashing stops. There is obvious erosion of the felt in that area. It does not appear to me that the flashing, where it exists, is really water-tight, and I don't know what to do about the area where the flashing stops. Is this just a really bad roofing job, or is this pretty common? What's the best way to deal with it? Just add more flashing after re-felting? I posted three pictures of the damage at the following web page:
I'd sure appreciate any advice!

Looks like a poor roof job. You may have to add some flashing there.
