John Dirks Jr Posted January 2, 2010 Report Share Posted January 2, 2010 I inspected a 3 level town home that has a significant problem with heat loss causing condensation in the attic. There is lack of sufficient insulation overall and further heat loss issues because of an attic pull down stair. There is fuzzy white bio stuff (hmmmm I wonder what that is) growing on the sheathing that is wet to the touch, yada yada... The ventilation was perforated soffit and ridge vent so that part looked ok. The client has asked me for contractor recommendations. I know the insulation needs to be upgraded and the trap door issues addressed to solve the problem in general. What about the order of things? Should the coldest of winter be waited out to allow the attic to naturally dry? Then, after the material is dry, the bio issues can be cleaned followed up by the upgrades to solve the problem. Does this sound like a reasonable order of attack? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
