condensation stains from weathered 2x4 trusses in solarium attic space


we have a 50 x18 solarium wood truss space that was constructed by dad before his passing. The sun has weathered these trusses black/brown and when cold weather arrives the trusses condensate and run colored water down onto the corlon panels we have installed between the bottom course of the trusses thereby discoloring them profusely in a totally unsightly mess in our winter solarium constructed between our u shaped house.Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

A picture or two will help---Obviously insulation is needed--but the how and where --will require more info.

Little late now to seal the wood by painting or staining..... normally applied before the glazing panels are installed or tinted.

Be safe, Gary

You can try a mild bleach solution in a pressure washer - this is common for log homes. There's also corn cob blasting, but that is $$$$.
