Default Roof leak, opinions.

Friend of mine had the roof on his 20X20 additiion replaced by his nephew about 6 years ago. The main house has a 6 pitch roof that transitions to a 2 pitch on the addition. The addition also has 2 fixed skylights. His nephew put on architecual shingles over 15 lb felt and I don't know if he put any ice and water along the lower edge of the roof or not. I have advised him that the roof should have been either roll roofed or membrane roofed when it was done and it that to try and patch the roof is a waste if time. He is tight on cash at the moment and wants a cheap fix. Anyone have any experience with the roof coatings that you roll on to seal the leaks? I am sceptical and doubt it will work and he should live with the occasional leaks and wait till he get the roof done the right way. What do you guys think?
