Roof sagging is a serious problem that needs to be addressed promptly. There can be several different factors that cause a roofing system to sag, and it’s important to know about them so you can determine the right solution to the problem.
Today, Wilson Roofing discusses common causes of roof sagging.Old Age
Old age is a leading cause of roof sagging. Most asphalt shingle roofs are only designed to last 20-30 years. If your roof is nearing the upper limit of its projected lifespan, it’s more vulnerable to sagging. Design or Construction Flaws
Flaws in the roof’s design or construction can easily make it vulnerable to sagging, even if it’s still relatively new. This issue can be caused by the manufacturers themselves or the contractor that installed the system. That’s why it’s critical to hire an experienced, reputable roofing contractor that offers high-quality roofing products.Weight
Too much weight on your roofing system can cause it to sag. One example of this is adding too many layers of shingles to the system. If you or your roofer ever make this mistake, the structural integrity of the system can easily be compromised.
