Factors Effecting Roof Lifespan


How to Handle a Sagging Roof

Causes of a Sagging Roof

A sagging roof can be caused by numerous different factors. If you find your roof is sagging, the following issues are all potential culprits:

  • Snow or ice accumulation;
  • Improper construction or installation (i.e., bad framing);
  • Water damage;
  • Or incorrect modification made without a permit.

All of the above issues result in the current roofing structure not being able to support the weight of the roof. These issues begin either as a weight issue or structural issue and as the situation progresses, will ultimately cause roof failure.

How to Handle a Sagging Roof

A sagging roof is a precursor to a cave-in and deserves immediate attention. If your home is experiencing this problem, it’s best to have a professional residential roofing contractor assess the situation.

Depending on how early on the damage is caught determines the extent of the repairs needed and subsequently the cost associated with those repairs.

It’s important for homeowners to be proactive with roof care and try to avoid these issues prior to them initially arising.
