Sweating Interior Walls in summer After New Roofing


I have been experiencing sweating hallway walls every summer (Southeast US) after a complete new roof was installed on my home. The sub roof and one layer was installed. I feel this is the best forum to post this topic b/c I suspect it is caused by improper roof board installation. Has any one experienced this situation before.

Thank you.

Tamara

Sweating Interior Walls in summer After New Roofing


Hi,

probably the airflow throughout the house was reduced by new boards & shingles. Not that it should be there...But if the roof was the only thing that was done, this could be the problem.

Did they install the same amount vents on the roof? Did you insulate the attic when the roof was done?



thanks,

Sweating Interior Walls in summer After New Roofing


Thank you Danko for your speedy reply. I did not insulate and we did put up the same amount of vents and whirly gigs. The roofers did not remove all of the old board as I think they should. They said it wasn't necessary. This I believe has created the problem. How do i remedy the sweating walls?

Is the a/c unit in the attic? You may have a loose return duct up there pulling in hot moist air. Could have been knocked loose by the roofing process, might just be a coinky-dink that it started after the new roof was installed. There should be no correlation between the re-roof itself and the problem you describe if nothing else was changed (ie, venting, insulation). It's more likely something wrong with the a/c equipment.
