Did you know that sagging ceilings may eventually worsen over time?
Your home’s foundations or frame can move, expand or shrink as temperatures rise and fall. This can cause movement or expansion in materials that are attached to or held up by the structure, including your plasterboard, cornices and ceiling.
These seemingly tiny movements can cause ceilings to warp, stretch, crack and sag Termites, water damage, leaks, undersized drywall and poor construction can cause a sagging ceiling. Poor construction can also cause the ceiling to sag.
Leaks from broken pipes, toilets, sinks and other appliances upstairs may result in a sagging ceiling if the water damage is severe. The water softens the wood and drywall which causes the ceiling to sag as time goes on.
