Long post follows.....
I've got a problem with condensation in my workshop I can't understand.
I'm getting condensation on the bottom side of the metal beam above the
doorway. It extends about 1 foot to the left of the door. The other roof
beams stay dry, it only appears to condense above the door and a little
to each side of the door.
Initially I thought it was roof leakage so I lifted the cladding and
replaced the metal flashing angle, sealing both sides well with a
copious amount of silicone sealant.
I found the condensation was still occurring and thought that it may be
damp air drawn into the shed at night via the gap between the door and
the door frame. I figured the moisture was condensing on the cool metal
beam (the cladding is screwed to the top side of this beam) so I
purchased some neat fitting self adhesive rubber seal. I fitted this
across the top and down the sides of the door. The bottom of the door
has a wiper type storm seal.
Despite this on >>rainless nights
