Wet Roof Insulation
Ok, I started today on fixing my roof venting issue. [See below for more details.] First piece of insulation that I pulled back was stained black--so it was definatly doing the house breathing. Next rafter over, as I started to pull back the insulation, I noticed water running out! Thankfully, the roof is dry, all the moisture was trapped between the insulation and the pink tray foam.
Question 1: this insulation is pretty wet, but as you might guess, removing it would be a lot of work (like, remove all ceiling drywall). I'm thinking of just pulling back as much as I can, and letting it air dry. Good/bad?
2. Is my thinking on this correct: the house is normally breathing, it has warm moist air rising upwards. But because air flow through the ridge vent is compromised by the lack of air intakes, air flow is slow. The warm moist interior air slows down, cools down, and dumps its moisture where it can.
3. last winter, and already this winter, I'm having an issue with moisture build up in the house, on the windows. I'm already on the verge of getting frost buildup. Might I need some sort of inside vent?
Full length ridge vent, pink foam tray under roof, at least most of it, before hitting a crawlspace. This crawlspace has a piece of 1x dimensional wood blocking the pink try from getting into this crawlspace. So, no air intake at the bottom of the pink venting tray. [Crawlspace is void of a good air intake too.]
