This is a simple yet overlooked aspect of property ownership and property maintenance. Do you have any trees near your house or other structures? One of the most common forms of property damage is trees or tree limbs falling on a property or house and causing damage. Our experts see this all the time and one would be surprised to see how a small branch can cause so much damage through shingles and even metal roofs, not to mention the cost of repair you would need to incur to fix this.
If the proper care is taken of your tree and a minimum of 3 inches of distance is kept then you should be safe. The larger parts of the tree are moved quite less by the wind and would be much less likely to brush against your roof or windows of your home. You would require a close inspection of the contact point on the structure since this is the best way to determine if a tree has begun to touch during a windstorm or even bad weather. If there are marks on either your home or the tree, it is bound to only get worse with time.
If you have established at least a 3-5-inch clearance off your roof, then it usually takes 2-3 years before most trees grow close again. If you have landscapes that include large shrubs, a lot of various high-growing plants, grasses, or fast-growing trees such as Chinaberry or Tallow Trees, it would be advisable to make an annual check of your roofline and our experts can do that for you.
