The gaskets may not be at fault; the first time the valve cover was removed it was probably damaged by an impatient mechanic.
Most covers are sheet metal and the gaskets have an ugly tendency to get sticky over time making removal very difficult.
An inexperienced or sloppy mechanic can easy damage the edge of the cover causing a permanent distortion that a gasket replacement cannot correct.
I hope you have correctly identified the source of the leak since a warped cylinder head can also cause oil loss but that would be from the junction of the cylinder and block.
That would be much more expensive to correct than replacing a damaged valve cover.
