Everything You Need to Know About Roof Sagging

As durable as it is, your roof is not immune to a vast array of issues that could necessitate a roof repair. While many homeowners tend to put off minor fixes, a sagging roof is one roofing issue that should never be overlooked. Aside from making your home look lopsided and shabby, roof sagging also poses a risk to the occupants of your home. Here’s everything you need to know about roof sagging.

Everything You Need to Know About Roof Sagging

What Causes Roofs To Sag?

One major cause of roof sagging is faulty installation. This is why it is very important that you only hire licensed roofing contractors to work on your roof.

Excessive loads or weight can also weaken the support structure of your roof. Common culprits include snow, ice, wind, or even the roofing materials themselves. Too many layers of asphalt shingles on your residential roofing, for example, can cause the roof to sag under its own weight.

How To Deal With Roof Sagging 

Unfortunately, there is no quick fix when it comes to a sagging roof and you will definitely require the help of a trained professional. The solution for a droopy roof will depend on what is actually causing it. For instance, if your roof is dipping in between rafters or trusses, it could be because of sheathing that is too thin. You can fix this problem by getting rid of the old sheathing and replacing it with a stronger material when the roof is replaced.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
