Winter Roofing Problem: Condensation

By Horch Roofing | Nov 26, 2012

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. If you are concerned about how condensation could be affecting your roof, contact Horch Roofing. We will assist you in finding the right solution to protect your home this winter.


Remember, it is important to keep your home weather-tight and properly ventilated this season.  We hear it’s going to be a cold, snowy winter, so call Horch Roofing today to discuss your homes performance and how it affects your roof.
