Are you trimming back trees? Home inspections in Hobbs New Mexico.

Are you trimming back trees? Home inspections in Hobbs New Mexico.

For some reason, when Desert Sun home Inspections in Carlsbad New Mexico   Inspects homes it seems there is a huge lack of importance on keeping up with the trimming of the vegetation around the home I have been inspecting of late.

Not only will the tree's limbs cause havoc with the roof coverings. But the tree limbs being blown around by the wind can also cause major structural damage as well.

Here we have a look at a roof that had been repaired. The roofer did a good job. (there you go Conrad) But after the roof was repaired, there was no effort to cut back the tree limbs that originally caused the damages.

Roof repaired. Tree limbs.

This means that the tree limbs will do it again. Like running over nails in your driveway and getting a flat. Then never picking up the nails that caused the flat. Hello.

tree limbs on roof.

Then there are the electrical service lines to the home. These have to be maintained just like the home's area.

See how low the line is. That's issue one.

But the see all the tree limbs in the back ground. That is issue number Two.

Always have a professional home inspector that inspect's every thing in and around the home. Don't settle for less when you can get a complete home inspection from

Clint McKie at Desert Sun Home Inspections. Call Clint today at 1-575-706-5586 for an appointment.

You will be so glad you did.

Hi Gita,

If the inspector is any good then they will. If not then this type of stuff goes unreported.

Have a great day in Bucks County.

Hi Debbie,

Why do they let the home go so long? Laziness i guess. A little work now or a lot of cast later.

Have a very good weekend in Claksville.

Hi Wayne,

Because they are lazy. No other reason not to take care of your own home. None at all.

Have a nice weekend in Fort Myers.

The trees don't have to be right over the roof to be causing damage.  I was in my backyard yesterday and noticed a very high tree, that was about 10 feet from the roof, had lost a huge branch which hit our roof and luckily caused no damage, just leaving lots of pieces of limb around.  We are going to be trimming a lot of trees that aren't even that close to the house!

Hi Fred,

Those limbs from the trees will tear up anything they touch. Never have them touching the home or any other structure on the property.

Have a great weekend in Land O Lakes.

Hi Kat,

Having no damage is a really good thing. i have seen tree limbs come out and break all the way through the ceilings.

Thanks for the comment and Enjoy the weekend in New York.

Hi Ginny.

Many don't get it at all. there are a lot of homes with trees hitting the home already and they do nothing.

Wait till they want to sell the home.

Have a great weekend in North Kingstown.

Good post. I have seen many shingle worn due to trees. What might not be touching now can still rub in wind and add the weight of snow and they are laying right on the roof.

I see trees damaging roofs and siding all the time.  But, as you show, on thing that most people don't think about is how they can damage the service conductors.

Hi Rob,

Most owners don't have a clue when it comes to the trees and their destructive nature.

Have a great day in Reno Nevada.

Hello Jay,

There are a lot of homes with the service lines in the trees. Then the wind blows and causes the lines to rub together and the tree to cause damage.

Have a good time on your trip and a even better day today.

Hi Clint,

Homeowners just forget which is a shame..we need a "101 Maintenance On Owning a Home" booklet!! As many times as they read or hear..they just don't go to the effort and expense to scheduling their trees trimmed!

Hi Dorie,

In many cases the tree's are the last thing owners think about.

Have a great day in Warner Robins.
