Why Is My Roof Sagging?

We all know what a saggy roof looks like. It looks sad. But it’s pretty dangerous as far as roofing problems go, too. It is often an indication of a totally failing roof, and can result in needing a total replacement if not rectified soon enough. But how did it happen, and what can you do about it?

A sagging roof can be caused by:

  • Too much weight. Excessive weight load on the roof is one of the most common causes. Your roof was specifically designed to handle a very specific weight range. Exceed that range, and you’re going to see a sag develop. This can happen because of a flubbed installation (more commonly replacement), heavy snow over a period of years, standing water; lots of stuff.
  • Water damage. Another fairly common root of a sagging issue, water damage can happen when your roof has sustained damage that goes unnoticed for too long. Missing shingles and cracking in your roof material allow water to get where it shouldn’t go, and once it’s there, it can cause a lot of rot and do damage to the trussing and vulnerable materials underneath.
  • Bad roofing materials. This one is far less common overall. When you work with professional roofers, you’re almost always going to get a perfect product. But if there was a mistake somewhere down the line, or you were unfortunate enough to get a bad roofer, you might have some shoddy roofing materials that just can’t stand up to the job required of them.
