I have a 2x6 beamed ceiling holding up a new metal roof. I want to keep part of the beams uncovered. do I need to vent above the insulation to keep out moisture? We are located in northern NM.

You would need to vent in this case to let the moisture out, not keep the moisture from getting in.

Picture will help in this case but it sounds like the roof is going to need to be vented regardless. Do you have soffits on the roof?
