a leaking valley

Hi Amy
Let me get this correct.....the 3-tab shingles butt join in the valley (from both sides) and then that joint was tarred over to seal it? Whew....now thats what I call a PROFESSIONAL JOB!! :-(

Assuming the FBN's (fly-by-nights) who did this are long gone, your idea of re-tarring until next year when you strip the roof is probably not a bad idea....but I would apply it carefully to ensure all joints are covered and that you don't have a build up on any shingle edges that might cause the sheeting water to slow down or be diverted sideways

Best
