I went into the attic today to check for leaks. In Chicago area this week we have had extremely cold and snowy weather and now rain. I had the roof replaced 3 1/2 years ago down to planking.

I now see damp areas on planking. Is this normal? or should I call my roofer to find out why? I have plenty of vents and soffit vents. I know I need more insulation.

It's all a matter of scale. Warm humid air in the attic with a cold roof can lead to condensation. That would dry quickly. But we can't tell from the above post. –  Bryce Jan 11 at 22:10
