“Help! My roof is sagging.” – The top 3 most likely causes.
Conservatories are known for their ability to be a place in which to kick back, relax, and remove yourself from the stresses that the modern world can sometimes bring. Sadly, this will no longer be the case as soon as your existing conservatory roof starts to sag, being a major cause for concern for both you and your property’s well-being.
Of course, diagnosing the problem as soon as possible is the best action to take, so we at Evaroof thought we’d run through the 3 most likely causes.
Slipped roof panels or tiles
When your tiled roof is initially installed, any reliable and trustworthy tradesmen will ensure that every panel comes fitted to be watertight so as to never allow for the risk of damp. It could be that if your roof is sagging, this is no longer the case due to possible tiles that have slipped, thus providing entryways that is now letting any unfiltered water pass through. Your roof won’t be able to take the weight and it will most likely start to sag.
If this is indeed the issue, fixing slipped roof panels is a simple case of sliding them back into place, replacing any broken or missing end caps to prevent this from happening again in the future. This is a fairly effortless process providing you are careful not to cause any further damage. But if in doubt, seek the help of a professional.
Leaking roof vents
The idea behind conservatory roof vents is to provide better insulation as any generated heat naturally rises. This heat is in turn filtered by the vents, resulting in a better all-round environment to experience and be in. They successfully circulate air and prevent the likely build-up of condensation, but can sometimes leak if poorly installed.
Repairing leaky roof vents is a process that requires the units to be removed from the roof, stripped down and given a thorough clean before re-assembling. Should you fit this back onto the conservatory roof and it continues to cause sagging, contact a reliable installer like those that make up the Evaroof team.
Faulty lead flashing
‘Lead flashing’ is the term given to the outer coating which covers the joints between the conservatory and the household. As well as an insulator that helps to reduce energy consumption, lead flashing has been proven to aid in soundproofing, making in a must for any conservatory that wants to stay comfortable.
Though the substance is highly resistant to corrosion, leaks can occur in between the joints that are present between home and conservatory. If enough water seeps through, sagging will eventually pose a problem, so it’s important to get in there and seal the gaps as quickly as possible.

Would Highly Recommend Evaroof!Being from a roofing/building background I was a bit dubious to go with a slate roof but it’s made such a difference due to the insulation qualities. During the recent heatwave, we have been able to spend all day in the room now whereas before it would have been too hot. Excellent installation carried out by the fitting team with nothing being too much trouble, very clean workers. Would highly recommend Eva roof!
