It sure is beautiful in North Carolina this time of year. Everything is in bloom, it’s not too hot out (yet), and the clouds of pollen have started to subside. Now that the trees and shrubs all have their leaves, it is easy to spot the ones that are overhanging your roof and touching your siding. This close contact is not good for your house for several reasons – vegetation touching siding and/or roofing can trap moisture, cause wear and damage, and be a conduit for insects. Trimming back all vegetation at least 12″ from the home is recommended. So call your local landscaper today and have him or her give your greenery a little TLC. Your home will thank you!
