Natural Things That Could Endanger Your Roof

composition roof frisco txWhen it comes to your property, your roof is one of the most important architectural features because it protects you and your belongings from the external environment. While your roof offers protection from the outside, there are many natural things that can pose a problem to the overall structural integrity of your roof. It is essential to be a proactive property owner to ensure your roof is always safe and secure. Below we list three things that can endanger your roof.

  1. Trees

Although having trees in your yard provide shade and beautiful views, trees can create problems for your roof if they are too close to your home. When a tree becomes too old, diseased, or struck by a storm, it can cause branches to fall and break through your roof.

  1. Algae & Moss

Algae typically are attracted to your roof during the warmer months of summer. If too many algae accumulate on your roof, your material can become weakened, creating a risk of collapsing.

  1. Moss

Similar to algae, moss forms in humid and rainy conditions and can accumulate on your roof causing a considerable risk of a weakened structural integrity. It is important to immediately remove moss when it appears on your home.
