    Hi
    In this recent high winds and rain, Ive noticed my garage roof is leaking. Its just where it joins to the house wall. Looks as though its seeping under the join where the felt comes down off the house wall to overlap the garage roof as thats where the wind is blowing the rain into and creating a puddle. Any ideas for a quick fix as apart from that its in good condition and fairly new?
    Cheers

    There should be a lead flashing in the joint of the brickwork over the felt upstand
