I have a metal house with metal roof. Certain weather causes condensation which drips onto bat insulation, then onto suspended ceiling. No moisture barrier, home was bult 25-30 years ago.

Is there any way you can increase your attic ventilation, your attic insulation, and/or the moisture inside your home?

No, very low roofline, then the suspended ceiling is there. Thought about the whirlygig vents, don't want to cause a roof leak. And, thought about foam insulation sprayed outside, but insurance agent was against it.

Where is the insulation placed in the attic? Did they lay it on the ceiling? Sounds like there is no sheathing or underlayment. Is the roof metal visible?

Looks like the insulation is laying over the grids that the suspended ceiling tiles fit into. I have moved the insulation some and can see the metal roof. Trouble is, looks like maybe double insulation laying there. I have thought about pulling everything out and spray foaming the ceiling, but the expense would be extreme.

This is not a great roof assembly for a home. The spray foam may be your only option.
