Why Is My Roof Sagging?

Sagging residential roof

It is crucial to take care of your roof as damage can lead to costly repairs. You may find that your roof is becoming sagging over time. A sagging roof is something you shouldn't be able to ignore as it can lead to costly repairs.

Roof sagging can be caused by many factors. One reason for a sagging roof is usually due to extra weight from snow, roofing materials, and ice. Inland Northwest winters can be really challenging for Spokane roofs!

Roof sagging can also be caused by too many roof shingles. This occurs after repeated layers of shingles are placed on top of the old shingles, rather than being removed first.

Sagging can also result from poor construction, aging and damage to the foundation.

A sagging roof reveals underlying issues.


Low-quality materials are more susceptible to weather and water damage. This means that sagging will be more common in a shorter time. A new roof can last anywhere from fifteen to thirty years depending on its materials and climate.

No matter what the reason, it is important to have a professional roofer examine your roof for damage and cause of sagging.

If the roof is in need of replacement, it's a good idea to remove the sheathing. This will prevent future sagging. Repairing a roof sagging can involve replacing framing, sheathing and roofing and interior finishes. It is best to consult a licensed and experienced roofer before you make any repairs or replacements.
