I've noticed some moisture in my attic near the vents after heavy, driving rain...also, I've noticed that a good portion of the nails coming through from the roof have a single drip of water on the tip..Is this a leakage problem? The weather has been cold...30-40 degrees outside.

I would say that it is condensation from lack of propper have to have soffit draw for roof vents to work.

Is the moisture everywhere? Or just in certian by the vents?

Mostly by the vents..and parts of the plywood are damp too..this side of the roof doesn't see the sun until the afternoon.

Can you explain soffit draw? Thanks

You have to have vents in your soffit that are open to the the air a way in and the roof vents at the top of the roof is where it comes out at.

Most roofs dont vent correctly....insulation gets shoved over the soffit vents or worse yet they are never installed.

If its condesation on the plywood you can install an elec vent with a humidistat that will draw the air out of the attic when the humidity gets to a certian point...

You need to find a roofer that you can trust to help you out.
