I recently had a metal roof installed. Now I have a few question. The original roof had quite a bit of wood rot due to many little water leaks (low slope). A lot of wood was replace then they installed tar paper, wood strips and then the metal. Since the new roof, I feels the cold a whole lot more. Is this normal? Also one of the reasons for the change was due to moisture. It has been raining a lot since the new roof was installed. I do have a dehumidifier set up and it seems the dehumidifier is actually filling up faster than before. Is this bad? I notice a spider web on the ceiling, and before I brushed it off I noticed it was swaying as if I had a fan setup in that room. Is it possible to have too much ventilation. The new roof looks great, but should I be concerned? Also attached a picture of where 2 different roofs meet. Does this look normal? Thanks for any information you can provide.

I am curious -- was anything else done to the house at the same time? New windows or siding perhaps?

Nothing else was done. I did ask the roofer when he came for the final payment. What he stated was due to the new roof any moisture which was already present will need a couple of months to completely dry out. The roof is sealed so now the moisture can't go up so it will go down. He told me to let my home air out and for me not to paint my ceiling for a few moths. But he did say it should be better insulated. I will watch to see how it is for the next few months and if things haven't changed I will raise concerns again. Thanks for your time.
