It started leaking after the roof guy was finished. Unfortunately, we hired a handy man for that job because that's all we could afford. He had references for him on previous jobs. He did the whole sunroom roof, with the main focus being the skylights and a corner (flashing I think its called) . So, he did this part of the houses total roof. It didn't work I guess or created a new leak. So, this weekend My son got up on the roof and did the thick tar and redid the gutters. Last night it rained. (I'm in Michigan). we found a new leak, so this weekend we are going to tar some more. I found a lot of mice droppings when I had my son start ripping the ceiling out more because we heard the new leak. I am going to have to check the other side of the house that has an attic to see how they are getting in. This room (sunroom) doesn't have an attic though, so I have to figure out where they are getting in at the no attic side. So, gross and frustrating. We also found a cold return was detached. That part of the living room with the attic so, I'm guessing somehow they got in through that. We had fiberglass roll for insulation before demolishing. do you think that's a bad thing/ or type of insulation to have in this situation of no attic/sunroom and weather conditions? It seems my supposed cement moisture has turned into a nightmare...new gutters, tar, walls, ceiling. Thanks for all your help. I really took all the advice and have learned a lot so far. I consider it a win to find all this leaking before I adding new drywall.

I wanted to say thank you. I had a new roof put on. The flashing, tar, vents, hole all contributed to the issue. Now, I'm dealing with the inside repairs. This group and participants really helped.
