In the layers of your roof, there is a thin layer of wood, called sheathing or decking, that lies beneath the shingles. If your roof’s decking gets too wet too often, it can begin to rot. Sometimes this is hard to notice since the sheathing is often completely covered by your roof’s shingles. So, how can you know that you have roof rot?

One sign is either sinking or swelling in your roof. If you notice a particular area of your roof is bulging or sagging, it could be because the wood beneath the shingles has begun to rot and decay. Another sign of potential wood rot is mold growth, especially on your roof or in your attic.

If you suspect that you have roof rot, you’ll want to call a roofing professional immediately before the damage gets any worse. Depending on the extent of the damage, the roofers may have to replace some or all of your roof’s sheathing. However, if you delay having this fixed, the damage could extend beyond the sheathing into other parts of your roof and home.
