    Hi, I've got really bad condensation Al over my loft on the timber and felt.

    I've noticed there's some type of silver insulation stuffed in to the eaves, looks a bit like silver bubble wrap.. Won't this be blocking the soffit ventilation?

    Here's a video:

    Appreciate any advice, hoping to resolve before further damage occurs!

    Sohail92, good evening.

    Short answer is remove the silver "stuff"

    On the external can you see any ventilation installed, that could be a continuous thin strip on the soffit, or? circular plastic inserts?

    Suggest you remove a bit of the silver "stuff" and if you can see daylight rip all of the silver stuff out !!!

    Looks like there maybe a rafter vent product fitted. Not totally clear to see though.
    If so leave the silver stuff in , its doing no harm
    open the felt/underlay laps up to allow extra venting
