Recommending for 25 years
“I have been recommending Columbia Roofing’s Services to my clients for 25 years. We first used their services when our house was in need of a new roof and my husband had chosen Columbia Roofing to do the task. My husband is a shopper, but he didn’t need to shop around for this project. We immediately decided that this company was the best choice for us. I’ve used Columbia Roofing more than once because the workers are always very courteous. They cleaned up after themselves and never left a mess. Columbia Roofing is dependable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”

Roof Leak or Condensation? What You Should Know! During winter months, many drywall stains called in as building leaks turn out to be caused by condensation. Because these stains can be large in size, residents are often unconvinced that condensation is the cause....
Roof Condensation—This Sneaky Problem Could Cost You
When you notice moisture on roofing, or any part the roofing assembly, your first thought may be to look for leaks. However, condensation is another potential problem that should not be ignored.
What is Condensation and How Does it Occur?
Condensation occurs when warm air is pushed up through a building and meets the colder roof structure and outside air. Rapid cooling allows moisture to form, which can be trapped in the surrounding materials. During cold winter months, the water can freeze. A layer of ice forms on the inner roof membrane, which will melt when the weather warms up.
Roof assemblies, where foil insulation covers batting insulation that is wrapped around supporting beams, are especially vulnerable. Moisture can get trapped in between the foil and the plywood roof. Buildings that are located near water or in humid climates are also more susceptible because the trapped can air hold more moisture. Lumber that was not allowed to dry properly before insulation was installed can be a contributing factor.
