    Wink Porch cieling beadboards buckled

    I live in a bungalow built a hundred years ago in 1907 in Wisconsin. It has a poch with beadboard cieling. The area above that cieling was open into my attic. This past winter I winterized the attic in preparation for adding living space by having closed cell insulation sprayed into wall cavity (previously unsheathed) that separated porch from house.

    I believe the roof is not leaking as I had it redone a couple years ago.

    This week weather turned warm and some of the beadboard has buckled.

    Now I need to figure out what to do.
    Should I add vents to the porch? If I do is it concievable that boards would shrink eventually. Do I remove buckled wood and trim back and reinstall? I don't want to take it all down if unnecessary.
    Does Tom Silva or Norm want to come out?
