Roofing leak near eave
Could a roofer possibly give an explanation as to what is occurring near my eave adjacent to a side wall. I have included pics. This has been about 8- 10 years in the making. There is currently a small depression (pic 1875) which is from deteriorating decking, but for 8-10 years there was dripping from underneath the soffitt below where this depression is pic 1871. The water also runs down alongside the house - pic 1869. (This water is not coming from the eave trough. At first that's what I thought it was and patched what may have been any holes within it years ago ) It rained here today and the pics show where the water runs. The drip edge is a clean white down gradient of the bad decking (compare pics 1875 & 1877), but a few feet from that area the drip edge is black showing that the water is running over the drip edge rather than into the eave.
As can be seen in the pic the depression is down gradient of where a nail would have been driven at a break in the shingle tab.
