After a housing contractor completes roof framing, he then covers the roof beams. This roof deck provides the base for all other roofing materials. It forms the foundation of any roof system, and is the final line of defense keeping the elements out of your house.

Roofing contractors often patch asphalt shingle leaks without checking the roof deck and other underlying layers for damage. Left unchecked, these leaks can lead to deck rot and mold. Ultimately, you might require a full roof replacement.

When you have roof issues, you need a contractor you can trust. County Roofing Systems has been a Long Island roofing contractor for decades. We have over 35 years of experience in home improvement, residential and commercial roof jobs. If you need roof replacement or roof repair on Long Island, contact us today for a free estimate.

Why Is My Roof Sagging?

If you’re noticing valleys and ripples in your roof surface, chances are your roof deck is warped or rotting. Long Island winters can bring heavy snows. If the roof deck is already wet thanks to roof leaks or shingle damage, the weight can cause the boards to bow.

If caught early and the damage is not too severe, a roofing company can repair the roof deck boards. Should broken or rotted trusses be the issue, you will need a roof reframing and a complete roof installation.

The best way to avoid a sagging roof is to start with proper roof ventilation. At County Roofing Systems, we make sure that every roof we install has proper air circulation. This allows water to dry after storms and helps prevent mold, roof rot, and other damage to your roof deck. 

Many contractors use less expensive underlayments for roof installations. But we use Grace Ice & Water Shield to waterproof our roofs against the worst LI/NYC weather. With a Grace Ice & Water Shield, your roof deck has protection against ice dams, nor’easters, summer squalls, and other Long Island/NY metro weather issues.

Regular roof inspections can also prevent roof deck issues. Storm damage may not be easily visible from the ground. An experienced roofing contractor will spot damage that homeowners and amateur roofers will miss. They can then perform a quick roof repair that resolves the issue before it leads to more serious problems.
