Your roofing system is an important part of your home. After all, not only does the roof protect your home from the elements, but it also helps improve the overall aesthetic appeal. With that in mind, it’s important that your roof remains in top shape. Unfortunately, there are some instances when you may notice that your roof is sagging, and some homeowners are confused as to what could be the cause.
Here is everything that you need to know about roof sagging.
Heavy loads are one of the possible reasons why your roof is sagging. Often, this is caused by a buildup of snow and ice on your roof, or there are too many shingle layers on your roofing system. With that in mind, to prevent your roof from sagging due to too much weight, contact an expert roofer immediately to remove the snow and ice from your roof or replace your roof entirely to remove the old shingle layers.
On the other hand, if you know that your roofing system has a few decades behind it, its old age could be the cause of the sagging as this means the roof is approaching the end of its lifespan. If this is the case, it’s recommended that you call a professional to replace your old roof as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
Improper Design or Construction
If you notice that your roof has begun sagging despite being brand new, it’s possible that your roofer made a mistake in the installation. To confirm this, consider calling a different professional to your home to inspect the roof and determine the actual cause of the sagging.
