    I have had my double garage roof renewed recently to replace an asbestos roof.
    However we have had the first amount of significant rain today and the anti-condensation plastic coated roofing sheets look very wet in near the gutter end of the roof.
    Can someone advise as to whether this is simply the sheets doing their job and removing moisture or is there a leak.
    I have attached a picture.

    My guesses, either not enough overhang on the side or flashing problem under the gutters, if it was me, I would altered the roof to extend the upper roof section to the same pitch

    Check that the bottom 2" of condensation cotton has been removed, if it hasn't you can get capillary action with the water soaking back up the sheet.

    yeah do what smash said. something i made the mistake of leaving on when i firt started using the fleece backed sheets a few years back. also make sure foam fillers have been installed to stop blowback/splashing when heavy rain and windy

    Anti-condensation...hmmm?

    Condensation resistant with a disclaimer would be more appropriate, one might think.
