If trees are close to my home, what kind of damage could they cause?
If branches are leaning on the roof, they can scratch roofing materials when they are blown by the wind. In addition, falling branches can damage shingles and leaves can clog gutter systems causing water to back up in the attic or other living spaces. Be sure to cut back trees that grow too close to your home to prevent future problems.

I have black or discoloring streaks on my home, what causes this?
Usually streaks on the roof are caused by algae, fungus or mold. They usually grow during periods of high humidity. Over time they can eat away at the roofing material, causing deterioration and eventually leading to leaks. You can trim back trees to reduce the amount of shade and to help improve air circulation.

How will I know that my roof has been damaged?
If shingles are missing or torn off, then the roof structure and property is vulnerable to water damage. If you see water stains on your walls and property, then do an inspection of your roof twice a year. Fix any problems you see immediately. This will help you save in costly repair bills later.
