Shade is good for a home, but too close is not.
I inspect a lot of homes in Southeastern New Mexico.
They all have a lot in common when it comes to wanting to have shade trees. In the summer we can get temperatures that reach triple digit without even trying.
Then you mix the high winds we get and it's a recipe for a damaging time.
Remember to remove any parts of trees and bushes that rub against the home when the wind blows.
Here the tree limbs are just starting to damage the shingles on the roof.
Here the tree limbs have already caused significant damage to the roofs shingles. And that is never a good thing.
Here is some damaged caused by the tree limbs rubbing the roof.
Now this needs to be repaired. Remember to keep the tree and bushes cut back away fromt he home. It's a lot cheaper to do that than repairing the damages caused by the winds and tree limbs.
Have a great day every one.
