There are many benefits of planting trees around your home. Not only do they look nice, but they can also provide your dwelling with shade (which saves you money on your energy bill).
However, you may come to find that a tree is entirely too close to your home. If you don’t do anything about it, you could run into trouble at some point. This includes:
• Roof and siding damage: For example, if the tree loses a limb during a storm, it could damage your roof and/or siding, thus requiring an immediate repair.
• Window damage: There’s nothing worse than the thought of a tree crashing through a window and into your home. You’ll have to replace the window, while also repairing any damage inside your home.
• Clogged gutters: Over time, limbs and leaves have a way of building up in your gutters. And if that happens, you’re sure to suffer a clog at some point. Subsequently, it can cause damage to your home, ranging from the roof to the siding to the foundation.
If your home has suffered damage, such as the result of a tree that fell during a storm, don’t hesitate to assess the damage and make the necessary repairs. Ignoring them will only make the problem worse.
