Condensation management

As we aim to make buildings use energy more efficiently, it’s important to let water vapor and moisture inside the buildings escape. To do this effectively, architects and designers need to incorporate the principles and different methods for preventing condensation in steel roof systems in their designs.

Learn how to effectively manage moisture in your steel roof system and help prevent condensation issues. This document explores essential principles and provides practical guidance. It looks at:

  • Why there is an increasing need for moisture management in residential buildings
  • Key design principles for moisture management in roofs
  • Effective ventilation of different roof types
  • Examples of steel-clad roof systems and considerations to mitigate condensation risk.

Case studies are provided to further assist understanding of how steel roof systems perform. Moisture management principles are crucial to ensure a healthy building. Stay informed and keep your building dry and comfortable.
