Disconnected, broken and improperly installed ducts are a major cause of mold growth on attic sheathing. The reason is simple; if an exhaust duct, such as a bathroom vent, is disconnected, all the warm, humid air from the house is pumped directly into the attic. This moisture condenses on the cool roof sheathing and eventually causes mold growth and sheathing failure. If the problem is severe and the attic has a compounding problem, such as poor ventilation, the moisture buildup can occur throughout the entire attic assembly. This often occurs in houses with poor passive ventilation in the roof.
In some cases, you will experience "Focused mold and moisture". In many cases, the faulty ducting effects only the area immediately surrounding the disconnected duct. Both moisture and mold growth will be limited to approximately a 5-10 sqft. area above the defective ducting.
