Your roof is there to protect you from debris, but what do debris do to your roof?
– Overhanging branches or debris which are touching or are too close to your roof will hold moisture and create a great environment for wood destroying bugs like termites, carpenter ants or wood-boring beetles.
– Debris which allow water to pool can create fungal rot, algae, and moss to grow on your roof.
– If they are heavy enough, the debris crack, scrape or ruin your shingles.
So, what do you do?
Well, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your roof and remove any debris as soon as possible.
Additionally: keep your gutters cleaned and make sure to keep your eyes on your roof and get it inspected if you are concerned about it.
