A sagging roof is not something you can and should ignore. Your roof is the biggest part of your home’s exterior, so whatever happens to it will greatly affect your property on the overall. But why is your roof sagging?
Here are some possible reasons, according to our roofing restoration pros:
Your Roof Is Old
With age comes deterioration and this applies to roofing systems as well. Over time, roof supports will deteriorate, especially when moisture damage is present, causing the structure to sag. While old age does not automatically mean your roof will sag, you can start looking for signs when it’s nearing its service life to avoid being caught off-guard by a potential collapse.
Your Roof Is Heavy
If you’re dealing with a roof sag but your roof is relatively new, your roofing structure might be too heavy. This happens when a heavier roofing material was used during a replacement but roof supports were not added or reinforced, or when a complete tear-off was not done by your roofing contractor prior to installing new roofing.
Your Roof Was Not Installed Right
Your roofing project will only be as good as the roofing contractor you entrust it to, so you can attribute premature sagging to poor craftsmanship. You expect a professional to do right by you and ensure you make the most of your investment, after all. If your roof is not old and you did a complete tear-off, you’re looking at installation issues as a possible cause for sagging.
