We love watching the seasons change, but the weather this time of year can also cause shocking damage to your property.

The shift in climate has already brought some impressive storms, producing devastating affects on many commercial structures. 

When branches are met with too much stress, they can break and fall on your building with heavy impact. Even before the limbs cave, their weight can cause damage if they start to lean on your roof, turning a small tree trim into costly repairs.

Not only do these accidents put a dent in your funds, but fallen trees can be incredibly dangerous, especially if falling debris or power lines are involved. Preventing potential hazards before they become major issues allows you to maintain a safe, quality establishment while keeping with your budget. 

Timely pruning alone can help maintain your exterior significantly, improving your aesthetics while making sure tree limbs will stay put without fail. In addition to your own property, neighboring trees should be trimmed regularly in order to prevent scratching branches and water-logged debris from causing destruction. 

As third-generation roofing experts, we have seen the consequences of delaying routine maintenance, and the most costly incidents come from neglecting proper roofing inspections.
