This can be caused by inadaquate insulation in the attic floor( the ceiling of the rooms below.) warm air gets into the attic and causes moisture

Expert:  Machinc replied 11 months ago.

This moisture can be present both as frost and moisture.

Proper attic ventilation is needed in winter as well as summer.

Make sure no attic vents are blocked. The part of the attic that is floored should have proper Insulation under it.

Expert:  Machinc replied 11 months ago.

If you are not sure about the insulation or how it is placed many insulation companies will give free estimates .

Any bathroom fans/vents should be vented through the roof and not directly into the attic.

Expert:  Machinc replied 11 months ago.

The ceiling light fixtures below should not be visible in the attic

Expert:  Machinc replied 11 months ago.

Anything that prouces heat in the attic can add to the problem
