I have a leak in my pantry. It’s coming from a roof joint directly above — where the roof plane butts up against a vertical wall.
I had a roofer come out and he used a sealant on the joint which you can see here
Rained heavy yesterday. The leak is still present (although not as bad). When I went up to inspect, I noticed he just used sealant but stopped short of sealing the joint up to where the roof peaks.
Obviously I don’t need to pay this guy to seal the joint up to the peak (I can do that), but my question is whether this joint actually needs “step flashing”. My understanding is that these are strips that sit flush to the wall and under the shingles.
