Mother Nature is literally trying to eat your home. We live in an organic world, where everything will be consumed eventually. The good news? With a little forethought and routine maintenance, you can protect your home from premature consumption.
The main cause of the premature deterioration of your home is vegetation being allowed to come in close contact with the roof, walls and foundation. If vegetation is allowed to lie against these areas, it creates a shelter that holds moisture. Before you know it, a little ecosystem is created that begins to eat your home. The first residents to show up are bugs, then rodents find a nice home there, and then come the bigger rodents. These unwanted visitors have the potential to create a huge, expensive mess.
