Question Flat roof repair

Need a little more info on your delima.
What is your patio roofed with?
Is it shingles? Is it a modified membrane? Is it organic or fiberglass rolled roofing?What is the roof on the main house. Is it shingles running onto a flat roof?

Either way, without knowing the specifics(assuming shingles on the main roof and rolled roofing on the flat roof), a quick fix would be to take a 36" rolled roofing and shove up under the shingles of the roof and come out on top of the flat roof so that any water will run off the top of the shingles and on top of the rolled roof and onto the top of the flat roof.

Does the flat roof meet the main roof directly, or is there a gap between the flat and the main roof? Is there any metal flashing connecting the two?

A few more specifics may be needed to give a detailed description of how to fix your problem.
