These are some of the things that you need to look out for to avoid the worst-case scenario:
A Sagging Roof
A sagging roof indicates that your roof and your home’s support structures are no longer holding up the roof accurately and safely. This sagging may be caused by excess strain placed on your roof, such as heavy snow, too many layers of shingles on your roof, and water damage.
Cracks In The Walls and Ceiling
Cracks in the walls are a serious indicator that your walls are under significant strain. Cracks in the ceiling are usually the first sign that your roof is in trouble and that the inside of your home will also be affected. If the problem is not tended to immediately, your roofing issues will affect your entire home, which can be a pretty expensive repair project.
Warped Door and Window Frames
If you’ve noticed that walking through your door frame or opening up a window is more difficult than usual, the problem may be your roof. A roof on the verge of collapse will start to sag; this sagging will significantly strain your home’s supporting structures which will also cause your door frames to warp and your window frames to buckle.
Audible Warning Signs
Your roof will audibly let you know that it’s in a bit of trouble. You’ll hear significant creaks, cracks, and wails for a few weeks before the roof collapses. Our advice? Investigate what those sounds are immediately; that way, you may have a chance of saving your roof before it collapses.
