    I have a 92 American Sequoia. It’s has a soft spot in the ceiling above the back light due to previous water damage. Would this be a simple fix of tearing out old material and putting in new supports? It seems a cross beam must be weak because I push down on it from the outside and there is a bit of saggging going on. And recommendations? Thanks

    Yes this is repairable, but you will find that when you start tearing the roof off a lot more rot.. but repairable

    This is my ceiling. Do you think putting a piece of 1/8 in plywood over this will give the ceiling integrity or should I run some type of cross beam from one side to Other.
