I'm looking to put a metal roof on a double wide. I'm worried about the venting of the roof. There is already problems with skylight. Mositure building up and stain the ceiling with shingles roof. The home has a cathedral ceiling. Is there a good way to vent this type of home?

It sounds like your existing construction allows few opportunities for venting. One option is to build a "cold roof" which in essence is a roof over your existing roof, and vent the resulting chamber. You'd need to make sure the home can handle the weight of that though. There also is a unique ventilation and insulation products available called ThermaDeck which might help you but it would still require a new roof over the existing.

If you have staining on the ceiling and condensation on the skylight, your indoor humidity is too high. Do you have bath fans routed to outside or a range fan over the stove?
