Aluminum Patio Enclosure Roof Leaking


The roof on my patio enclosure leaks when there is heavy rain. How do I prevent/repair the problem on an aluminum roof with seams?

My aluminum patio leaks too. I know where the leak is coming from. Should I calk the leak from inside the patio or from the top outside?

Caulking from the outside would be best.

It may be as simple as properly placed caulking, but without pics we are all just guessing. I see a number of patio leaks in CA and most of them are from a poor tie in. It is either tied into the fascia below the pitched roof incorrectly or tied into the roof incorrectly. Caulling it may be a temp bandaid if your having leaking in more than just a spot.
