Condensation in Metal Roof Assembly
I’ve done quite a bit of searching and I think I have a general understanding of the proper installation regarding dealing with condensation, but I was hoping you guys could clarify a couple of things.
A house I’m flipping in South Carolina:
Vaulted ceiling — The roof layers looks like this: decking, then felt, then shingles, then the previous owner installed a metal roof directly on top of the shingles. The metal is condensating and then dripping down and entering into the roof decking and subsequently the walls at the boot cutouts. I have no idea what to do here. I’m pretty sure at the least, I have to strip the roof down to the decking. I’m indifferent between a metal or shingle roof, but it’d be nice to reuse the metal if possible (it can’t be more than 2 or 3 years old and looks great).
I’m sure I’m missing some details, but I’d appreciate some feedback or links to previous articles/discussions I may have missed during my research.
