About two years ago I purchased a home in Maine (which was built about 6 years previously). The roof is metal. Yesterday I noticed a leak in the ceiling. Removing the wallboard, insulation panel, and sheets of insulation allowed access to the roof. There was frost on the bottom of the wood which is under the metal roof and some of the frost was melting and coming down the beams and into the house. Is this condition common with metal roofs, and what can be done to fix it?

Ideally, from the inside out, construction would consist of the following: drywall, vapor barrier, insulation, vented airspace (with intake and exhaust vents), decking, underlayment, metal roof. Missing one or more of those components can lead to problems like what you are experiencing.
