Home Inspection Plano Roof DamageRoof Damage Identified By Plano Home Inspector

The other day I showed you a tree that was close to the house and I said that it could cause foundation problems to the home.

I also said that I was going to see if the same tree caused any roof problems and I would show you the results. As you can see in this picture, the branches did cause damage to the roof.

Before planting any trees close to your home you should consider what damage the tree could cause as it grows.

As a home inspector in Plano, TX I see a lot of issues like this. Before you choose your home inspector take the time to view their sample home inspection report. This report can help you see the quality of the inspection services.

Home Inspection Plano – Finds Tree Problems

Home Inspection Plano Tree Problems

As you can see this home in Plano has a tree problem. When a tree is this close to your home it can cause some serious problems to your foundation. Some people would just cut the tree down and problem solved.

Not everyone wants to cut down their trees so what else can you do to save your foundation and the tree?

You could consider the installation of a root barrier to reduce the possibility of damage to the foundation from tree roots and moisture removal.

Another problem with trees being this close to the house is roof damage. I will be looking at the roof next and I will show you if there is any damage.
