A sagging roof should be repaired or replaced immediately

Roof sagging is a severe problem that needs to be promptly addressed. Several factors cause a roofing system to sag, and it's essential to know about them to determine the right solution.

Old Age

Older roofing systems can lead to a sagging roof. Most asphalt shingle roofs are only designed to withstand the elements for 20-30 years, with minimal external damage and proper maintenance. As your roof nears the upper limit of its projected lifespan, it becomes more vulnerable to sagging.

Design or Construction Flaws

Flawed roof design or faulty construction can easily make it vulnerable to sagging, even if it's still relatively new. Manufacturers can cause this issue or the installation done by a contractor. That's one of several reasons why it's crucial to hire a skilled, reputable company that offers high-end roofing products.


Too much weight on your roofing system can also cause sagging. One example of this is if too many layers of shingles were added. If your roofer ever makes this mistake, the system's structural integrity can easily be compromised.

Sagging roofs are symptoms of a severe problem that should always be checked out by a roofing professional. Our team will gladly give you a free drone inspection to ensure that your roof doesn't have this or other damage.
