Re: fred

:confused: Is the bath possibly an open concept in the master bedroom? I know that in our main bath when it is extremely cold out with the vent fan on we still have condensation on the bath ceiling and walls but that is mainly cause of no heat in that room.
If not open concept in master bdrm then you have an issue. I'm confused also.

our house was bulit with metal studs so when we take hot baths or really hot showers you can see the studs and the wall is wet where they are.the bath has no doors just two door openings to bathroom.it just started doing this since it got cold.

Re: fred

It's similar to what's known as "ghosting" in colder climates and due to lack of a thermo break ( or poor insulation).

The cold will come through where the studs or joists are, more than anywhere else. If the humidity is fairly high in the house the cold parts of the wall or ceiling in front of the framing will attract the moisture. Make sure you have a bathroom fan on while showering and let it run for a long time after.

Hope this helps.:)
