i bought a house in june and the bathroom fan start dripping water a few weeks ago (november). I looked at the inspection report and the picture shows that the vent duct through the roof isn't insulated. Do I need to replace the metal pipe all together or can i just wrap insulation around it?

Another thing is that the pipe isn't long enough to reach to the outside of the roof, so it is venting inside the attic. i am guessing i will have to get a new duct or pipe?

    Really the vent should angle down and drip to the outside. If you can't do that just add venting insulation. – DMoore Dec 12 '14 at 5:07
  • do you mean homedepot.com/p/… by "venting insulation"? – user21479 Dec 12 '14 at 20:19
