Dips in Roofs

The Roofing Professional also offer services to remove unsightly or dangerous dips in your roof. It is much easier to do this when the roof tiles are off. There are several reasons for the dips in your roof. Usually due to inadequate support through bracing, struts or purlin supports. However it  can also be due to more serious problems such as termites. We can do structural repairs to your roof to rectify these problems.

It is quite common to see large dips in roofs, especially with older homes and generally doesn’t prove to be a big problem. It is the smaller dips a homeowner should be concerned with because this often results in wood damage where termites have weakened the wood and the wooden structure is unable to support the structure of the roof.

Sometimes a large amount of pressure on a roof can result in a roof dip. A few years ago The Roofing Professionals  restored a roof in Coogee where a tree branch had fallen on the roof causing it to dip and damage the structural wood under the roof. Cutting tree branches surrounding a home can prevent possible roof dips occurring. A large amount of pressure on a roof like snow fall can result  in a roof dip however this is very unlikely to happen in the eastern suburbs of Sydney!
