There are leaks at the pitch where there is a narrow band of ponding because the boards creating the pitch do not fit tightly. I still have 2 years on that manufacturer's warranty...

    I had a metal roof (ideal roofing H-16) installed last year on a steep pitched roof that is joined on top and on bottom by two flat roofs. It was professionally installed by our roofer. We are getting moisture inside our home where the base of the metal roof meets the flat roof. We are trying to...
