Q:

I purchased a manufactured home built in 1998 for my daughter.  The inspection revealed that I needed a new roof.  The inspector saw a small leak in the lanai and interviewed a few roofers who said the leak resulted from the attachment to the regular roof.

So I had the roof replaced last week, but now the lanai is leaking worse than before.  The roofer and I inspected the lanai and it appears to be leaking along the seams.  He claims this was not part of our contract - but the sole reason I replaced the roof so soon as becaue of this leak.  What can be done to repair it? I have not paid him in full yet. During the recent storms the whole Florida room was drenched.
