Roof condensation, when moisture develops at the roof ceiling area and becomes trapped there, can pose a huge problem for homeowners. Left untreated, condensation could potentially destroy your roof structure, causing leaks.
Condensation generally occurs during the wintertime when there is a major difference between the outside temperature and the interior temperature of your home. To prevent this from happening, it is important for homeowners to seal and insulate their attics as well as possible. Areas that should be sealed or insulated include: attic hatches, HVAC ducts, chimneys, top plates, penetrations from wiring and plumbing, dropped ceilings, bulkheads, electrical fixtures, and skylights.
Remember, it is important to keep your home weather-tight and properly ventilated this season. If you’re worried this happened to you this winter, call Horch Roofing for a roof inspection.
