Do you have a Project we can help with?
There are two main reasons that trimming your trees can help your roof out. The first, most important reason is to prevent branches making contact with your shingles. Day by day, night by night, wind will continue to move the branches back and forth. The small branch doesn’t seem like it could be harmful but this continuous movement will slowly but surely create a hole in your shingles from a term that we refer to as “tree rub”. Once a hole is created, it is very possible for water to then enter into your home and leave you with costly sheetrock repairs. The second motive is to help prevent animals from climbing onto your roof. Squirrels, possums, raccoons, etc. have easy access to your rooftop when the branches are hanging. Once they reach your rooftop, you may hear a clawing noise, especially during the cooler months when they want to access the warmth of your home. Our recommendation to prevent tree rub is to have your branches cut back approximately five feet back from your roof. Keep an eye on it from time to time. If you see branches in the three foot range from your roof, you know it’s time to have the branches trimmed back again.
How Tree damage occurs
Branches falling onto the roof
Broken parts of trees falling on to the roof due to wind or storms is the most common way for trees to damage your home’s roof, it happens without warning and the damage can vary depending on the size of the tree and branches.
Growing into the roof
Trees grow naturally over time and sometime branches begin to poke into your roof, given enough time these can be a source of serious damage to your roof.
