If you notice signs of timber sagging in your roof, this is definitely not good news for the structural integrity of your home. In Perth, timber sagging is usually caused by the age of your timber supports, climate stress, leaky roofs, or a combination of warping and gravity over time that affects older homes. In modern homes, timber sagging is usually caused by poor quality materials being used from the beginning.
In the event of timber sagging, you may need to call in the professionals to repair or replace your roof timber supports. In extreme cases, re-roofing or a complete roof replacement may be better options.
Recognising the Symptoms
There are a few symptoms of timber sagging that you can look out for to try and catch the problem early on. If in doubt, don’t hesitate to organise a thorough roof health check with Air Roofing. The signs of sagging timber include:
- If the roof looks wrong or out of position
- Crooked or out-of-place tiles
- The angle of the roofline is no longer straight
- Steel roofing has shown signs of movement
Metal roofing is extremely strong and can only be moved when the supports or joints are separated or lifted. Your roof may not be the issue which is why it’s important to get a professional to look at it straight away.
