Here in Indiana, there’s a saying that “if you don’t like the weather, just wait a few minutes and it will change.” Sometimes, you can have sun in the morning and snow in the evening, and that kind of change can bring a lot of stress to older trees. Combine that with the occasional ice storm, and you can have a serious problem on your hands. Trees break under the immense weight of the ice forming on branches, and sometimes, those branches can do real damage to a home.
The cost to replace a roof on just a 1,200 sq ft house can be between $4,000 - $6,000. Roofers can charge anywhere between $50 and $80 per hour for their time to work on a damaged roof, and shingles cost between $6 - $8 per square foot. As you can see, the costs can add up fast. Sure, insurance can cover roof damage due to a fallen tree, but deductibles can often be in the thousands. A quick and affordable way around the headaches that can come from tree damage is to have them removed.
One call to us here at Rowan Landscape and Design, and we will come to your home, take a look at the troublesome trees in your yard, and remove them at a lower cost than repairing that roof will be.
