A sagging roof is a low portion of the roof that sometimes takes the shape of the saddle. This is caused by excessive load like snow, wind and poor roofing materials used during construction. Improper design or assembly of the roof or the wall structures may also cause the roof to sag. An old aged roof is also prone to sagging. In this post, we’ll explain what you need to know about roof sagging.
What Causes Roof Sagging?
If you start to notice that your roof sags or shows damage, call on professional roofers like Diamond Roofing Specialists, Inc. to help you inspect it. As a roofing expert, here are the common causes of a sagging roof:
Trapped Moisture – Does your roof have working drainage of water from rainfall or snow? If moisture or water is trapped, it produces molds and mildew and it causes the roof to sag.
Structural Damage- Was it damaged because of the heavy load such as the heavy amount of snow? Check the damage such as the poor installation, warped plywood and anything that may contribute to the bad appearance.
Deteriorated Lifespan – Is your roofing more than a decade old? Its lifespan is deteriorated which causes it to sag.
