Condensation Management in Roof Cavity

Condensation in a roof cavity refers to the process by which water vapour in the air inside the roof space changes from a gas into liquid droplets when it comes into contact with colder surfaces, such as the underside of the roof or roof truss components. This phenomenon occurs due to temperature differentials between the warm, moist air inside the roof cavity and the cooler surfaces of the roof structure. Condensation can be a common issue in roof cavities, especially in climates where temperature fluctuations and humidity levels vary.
