Will metal roofing have condensation on a patio roof ? This will be an open air patio with 1/12 pitch . Thanks

there will be some when the dew point is just right. But it should not be a problem because of the amount of air movement.

Joel, Thanks for the question. Condensation will form anywhere that warm moist air comes in contact with a cold surface. A metal roof with open walls will not stay significantly colder than the surrounding air temperature for long, so I would not expect extreme condensation. However there certainly could be some.
