Manufartured home w/ cathedral ceilings


This home has all vented soffit but no outgoing ridgecap vents or any other roof vents The roofing material does not last and condensation moisture coming down between inner and outer walls is causing severe problems. It has 2 x 6 trusses as well as walls and no attic space. Please help!

Manufartured home w/ cathedral ceilings


Joe, No pic yet. The shingles are buckled in several places and soft spots also and very worn for their age. This roof was put on new when the house was purchased 7 to 8 years ago due to its condition. The house was only 5 years old then. The contractor did not peel original shingles. but the particular area that I'm having the main trouble with had to be redecked and they apparently did not look for a cause.. Poor workmanship at the least! I'm located in Terre Haute IN. East central on Illinois border.. Interstate 70 runs thru here. I will try to get a pic posted asap. thanks for your interest.

Typical issues with a manufactured home can be:
Not enough over hang on the outside edges of the roof.
Undersized, over spanned sheathing.
No tar paper, I've even seen them use Kraft paper instead of tar paper.
Staples instead of nails used to hold the shingles on.
