Overhanging branches can really damage your roof! Is it time for a trim?

You might be checking your roof regularly for damaged shingles and roofing materials, but are you also keeping an eye on the trees surrounding your house? Over hanging branches can actually be more of a problem than you think.

Tree branches and leaves that touch your roof can eventually damage shingles, especially in high winds. Over time the abrasive scratching can cause real problems. Overhanging branches can also give squirrels and other rodents direct access to your roof where they can gnaw on your roof and siding. Tree-trimming also goes a long way toward keeping leaves and branches off your shingles to extend the life of your roof.

Regular roof maintenance and checkups, in addition to keeping overhanging branches at least ten feet away from your roof can really increase the longevity of your roof.
