HELP! In 2009 I replaced my farm house with a metal roof. My home owner's insurance did pay a little. I paid over $5K for a roofer the insurance company gave a glowing reference as well as the supply house. In 2013 discovered my bathroom roof was leaking. Now I have discovered the roof is leaking. I do not have an attic; the crawl space is sweating and my ceilings are pine which are beginning to mold. Home Owner's Insurance will not pay for faulty workmanship - even though they recommended this roofer (now bankrupt). Insurance adjuster commented that Ridge caps missing end capping, ridge vents leaking, no furring strips were put down, venting needed to allow space between roof and ceiling to breath. Insurance refuses to pay a dime. I don't have a clue who to call. I don't know where to start trying to get the mold off my ceilings without stripping the pine. I am desperate for any information you might have.

It sounds like there may be both leak issues and possible condensation issues. Do you know who manufactured the roofing? I would think they could supply someone to do an inspection and at least help sort out what the problems are.
