Untrimmed trees pose a danger to any property and can cause serious damage to the roof. Many people in Florida overlook the importance of tree maintenance for their property. Florida roofing systems are subject to wear and tear, but when a tree branch is placed on your gutter and roofing system, it can lead to serious issues.
Tree Limbs during Storms
Untrimmed trees near your house can cause your roof to be overburdened. A large branch or tree debris that falls on your roof could result in significant damage.
If limbs are hanging over your gutter system, they can disrupt the flow of water through your gutters. Branches can accumulate and stain your roof. Maintaining a constant flow of water for your roof can be very challenging.
Florida’s humidity and heat may also cause damage to your home. Mold and rot damage can occur when mold spores are allowed to grow along the roof. This is more likely to happen when vegetation covers a roof and causes mold growth.
Regularly trimming the limbs on your roof will help you enjoy a better roof system and prevent future roof damage.
