I've recently noticed that the soffits along the exterior wall of the master bath, are rotting. No where else on the house does there seem to be this problem and the gutters are in good shape. My concern is that the moisture from the bathroom doesn't have an appropriate outlet through the attic to vent out - I noticed previously that the area above the two upstairs bathrooms in the attic is "walled" off with fiberglass insulation. Is it possible that this is creating the problem with the soffits? Should the insulation wall be taken down and an exhaust fan installed in the bathroom along the outer wall? (The inner bathroom has an exhaust fan installed whereas the outer bathroom does not) Thanks!
