- Condensation problems


Dear Shell,

We have a problem with condensation dripping all over the place from our aluminum patio roof. Is there something we can spray on it or ????

Thanks, Earl

Dear Earl,

This is a very common problem with metal roofs that are open on the underside. For best results purchase a product called Reflectix (or any similar foil insulation product). Staple on the underside of the rafters. This will reflect away the warm moist air (condensation) escaping from your home every time you open the door to your home causing the warm air to rise and condense on the cold aluminum.

It's just that easy.
