Spring Maintenance: Trimming Back Branches to Safeguard Your Roof

Now that Spring has arrived, many have begun the process of Spring cleaning. Amidst the large amounts of chores and tasks, adding in tree trimming can prevent all kinds of damage. This task is often overlooked, but if you take the time to ensure your branches are cut back, you are adding assurance that your house will be in good condition. In this blog, we will look at some of the reasons why tree trimming is great to do in the Spring. 

Pollen: If you read our blogs, you know how much of a pain pollen can be. Not only does it stick to your roof and the sides of your house, but it can cause moisture to get trapped, leading to the growth or mold, mildew, algae, and so much more. 

Falling Branches: Overhanging branches are always risky for your home. However, many trees grow flowers in the Spring, and these can add extra weigh to branches. If they are already cracked or about to break, they may be more likely to snap. 

Pests/ Animals: Many bugs and animals live in or are drawn to trees, making them more likely to climb onto your roof or cause trouble for your home. If you can make it harder for them to get onto your house, you are adding an extra layer of protection.

Scratched Shingles: Overhanging branches can scratch your shingles when blown in the wind. This can lead to granules being scraped away, bent or broken shingles, and so much more!

As you can see, there are many reasons why tree trimming is important. If you have the experience and are able to, you can always trim your trees on your own. Otherwise, we recommend calling a professional. If you suspect that you may already have damage to your home, give us a call so we can offer you a free inspection! Enjoy the beautiful weather!
