Happy New Year forum - can anyone help with the following problem?

Just finished some rebuilding/redocrating of our victorian terrace house - building regs insisted on massive upgrade to the insulation - and now condensation seems to be forming on the sloping insulation, running down the slope of the pitch and causing problems.

We suspect need additional ventilation into the loft space - has anyone had this problem, can anyone recommend local roofing company with expertise in this area?

De-humidifier might help in the short term.

I recently had a Dulwich based company repair some flashing on my roof. They also cleared the gutters and redressed some felt that had gone adrift back into the gutter while they were up there and at no extra cost. I can't say whether they were cheap or not since I didn't really shop around, but they did the job efficiently and I wasn't at all surprised by their quote. Details below;

Ray Jones roofing are a good local company, based in Dulwich. You do need to vent your roof to stop this.
