4 season sunroom has developed water leaks from the roof. It's only a few years old. What to do about the problem? Looking for repair ideas.
Where does it leak from? Does it leak at the seam between the house and the sunroom or elsewhere?
If it's at that seam, it could be a flashing faillure. Correctly re-flashing would be a fix whereas caulking can be a bandaid fix.
You can also make sure that the caulking isn't rotten. Sometimes replacing the caulking can fix your leaking problems.
You really need to have a few Contractors have a look and give their assessment.
Typically leaking roofs are not because of a gapping hole.
Flashing is usually the culprit and often done incorrectly.
It is also possible that the insulation and vapour barrier were installed incorrectly (very common), or not at all. This can cause a lot of various water issues from condensation (moist warm air in the house condensing on the cold ceiling or joint) or ice damming near your soffit which can allow ice (and shortly thereafter, water) to migrate up under the edge of the roof shingles and quickly work its way through the roof sheathing and on down to the walls and ceiling inside.
Check to see if the sunroom is still under warranty.
If not, get a few opinions from qualified Contractors.
Best of luck
