 It s raining INSIDE my new Pole Barn

HELP!

I just finished a 42 x 63 pole barn on the new property and the roof is "sweating" so bad that is seems to be raining inside. The inside of the roof panels on the north side (peak goes east and west) seem to be much worse than on the south side. There was some snow on the roof, it has gotten warm enough now that it has slid off from both sides, but it is still raining! Can anything be done about this?

Additional info: Gravel (road base) floor, 14' wall height, one 12 x 12 overhead door, one 36" service door, no windows, building roof peak goes east and west, service door faces west roughly on center of building, overhead door is in north west corner facing west.

We have some stuff stored in there from thinning out the house for selling proposes, but luckily it is not getting wet (yet). It is all on the south side of the building. Only the plow truck and the peddle boat are on the north side right now, so they can get wet, I don't care. If I tarp the boxes and stuff in there will condensation form inside the tarp too?

You could spray some foam insulation on the under side of the roof.

My neighbor recently finished a similar sized and construction pole barn. The contractor installed a 3/8" layer of silver "bubble wrap" type insulation under and directly to the sheetmetal roofing to address this issue. Kinda late for you now but you may be able to go back and do this in some areas.

I get this a few times a year here. It will be cold then a warm moist front will come in from the south. I get almost everything covered with water including the cement floor.

I would assume you would need to keep the air from the underside of the metal. Maybe you could consider the bubble insulation like the solar covers for the pool.

Walls are a pale tan color and the roof is dark green.

Just going up there to put some ploy over the contents. I guess this is just how it's gonna be, huh? Maybe when the concrete floor is done (year or two, sigh) maybe the moisture level will drop inside, lowering the frequency of this phenomenon.

The color of the roof is contributing to your problem. Dark colors absorb heat, light colors reflect it. It's probably the absorbed heat that's promoting condensation on the underside. I too have a dark green netal roof, manage to avoid condensation accumulation with vented soffit, a 1-3/4" air gap, and a ridge vent. Cool dry air enters via the soffit, then the principle of "heat rises" causes it to flow to and out the ridge vent. I believe this moving air is why I don't have a condensation problem.

I've had this problem in the past, but it seems to have let up after the moisture in the soil and gravel in the building dry out the first year. If you plan to concret the floor things will get better, but even with concret there will be times in the spring when the floor is cold and the air is warm and moist that the floor will look like it rained in the building. Venting the roof will help a lot too. Best of luck. Frank.

Bill had the solution.

There is a product made for this purpose. It isn't cheap and is a royal PITA to install but it does work. It solved my raining issue just like yours on an open end wing on my last shed and the roof color was white!

I tried pouring concrete but that only made my wallet lighter and the concrete wet. It still rained in the morning just as the sun peaked over the ridge and hit the shed roof. This is why I installed a traditional wood deck and shingles on my new shed to prevent all the micro-climate issues.

There are several good ways (some mentioned above) to incorporate while building to prevent this but you need something to do now.

The stuff I used came from Tech Supply in 5 gal buckets. I used a sheetrock mud sprayer (can you say MESSY?) to fling it upwards. I would recommend a proper spraying device as I just used what I had. It turned out really well, looked great and it quit raining.

At least, it worked for me. Good luck!

This is type of stuff I'm talking about. As you can see, you can buy it as a do-it-yourself kit but I think it would be cheaper to hire someone in the business.
