Sagging Trusses Roof Repair – Lucas Contracting
When your trusses start to sag, it is likely because of structural damage due to excess weight. If your trusses are old, have experienced rot or have gotten too wet, they can cause sagging as well. It is best to notice the trusses sagging early to avoid them breaking and experience a roof collapse – which is what could happen if you do not get them repaired.
You will find DIY guides online for a sagging truss, but it can be very complicated to perform. It is best to let a licensed professional handle the fixing and repairing of your roof to avoid very expensive problems later on.
