I have found that roots sometimes takes forever to sink. I had one small root about 6" long and 1" in diameter that took a few months to finally sink on its own.
Go ahead and weigh your wood down so you won't have to mess with it any more. Then you can go ahead and start working on your scape design.
If you're concerned about a rock or slate scratching your bottom glass, you can either put an eggcrate at the bottom of your tank or wrap some of the blue and white filter floss underneath it so it can't scratch anything. I've done that with my driftwood, and it's worked out very well. I was lazy so I just used cable wraps to hold the filter floss onto the slate.
