    I went into the loft yesterday and found sight condensation on small patches of felt at the top of the eaves. I have been reading about the importance of good ventilation but as I only have a slight problem I wonder if the comment below from another forum member is a waste of time or could it do a little good to fix a minor problem.


    Comment found on another forum:

    Go into the loft space with some short lengths of timber such as tile batten, slip some of these between the felt laps there by holding them slightly open allowing extra air flow into the loft.

    Yes this would create extra ventilation to a degree, though best to do it properly in the long term using tile, soffit vents.

    I already have soffit vents which were blocked up in places with insulation, which I have now cleared.
