attic condesation on vent pipes

Posted By: Al Byrd

I recently noticed a stain on the top of one of my kitchen cabinets. The home is 3 years old. I thought that possibly I had water infiltration around the flange on one of my roof waste vents, although I could not see any sign of water on the underside of the roof and on the vent stack. I did seal around the stack flange again. The problem appears to be continuing. There is no sign of water on the blown in insulation, no packing or moisture that I can feel and the joints on the pipe appear to be tight. I am wondering if possibly since this pipe passes within 3 inches of a kitchen hood vent that the temperature difference could be condensing water. To help alleviate the problem I have put a layer of plastic under the pipes to catch any condesation but I'm not sure I'm on the right track any suggestions
