Roof lines and slap dash fix

What’s wrong with that, you ask? Well, rain falling on the section of roof on the right will come down and hit the siding at the center of the picture (better hope they did a good job of flashing!). And then it runs down and inundates that window. So someone slapped up a little valley of flashing to divert it beyond the window.

First off, this is a design problem. Whoever put this set of plans together didn’t think it through very well, if at all.

Second, it’s an implementation problem. Granted, you can’t fix stupid, but this is at best a temporary fix.

I’m not sure what a better solution would be though…
