    I had the pleasure of my garage roof being completely redone. The guy that did it came recommended so all OK there. Or as I thought. Some issues but the main one that I now have is the plywood is wet all over. In some places its sweating with condensation dripping in places. Is there anything I can do to insulate the roof from the inside to prevent this condensation (if that's what it is). Any suggestions?

    Are you heating this garage. A few pictures inside and out will help.

    There's no heat at all in the garage. The garage is a standalone separate to the house and is joined to my neighbours garage. I will try to take photos but the easiest way of describing it is that all the plywood is wet wherever you are in the garage. Is some areas there are moisture drips dripping from the roof. What IO am not sure of is (a) did the roofer use marine ply, is it necessary? and (b) not sure of what layers of felt were applied eg 1 or more. I'm no expert in this field and guidance would certainly e appreciated.
