Bad Roof Design

When we arrived, we found the usual assortment of buckets on the floor.

Though you may not be able to see it in the photograph, there was a slight bulge in the drywall ceiling but no other signs of moisture.

The moisture meter, however, read off the scale when placed on this spot.

An IR image showed a concentration of moisture. (Note also the dark square areas to the right of the moisture spot; these indicate voids in the cathedral ceiling's insulation.)

The root of the problem turned out to be poor roof design.
