It’s generally more beneficial to get rid of the vines growing on your home than allowing them to continue to grow and eventually take over. One of the worries with climbing plants is that the vines will find their way underneath the shingles and tiling on your roof. When this occurs, the shingles and tiling can become loose. Not only does this affect the structural integrity of your roof, more importantly it creates gaps through which rain and other precipitation can enter your home. Moisture within the loft of your home or an attic space can lead to mold and rot. Making matters worse, the vines hold a lot of water, which can cause damage to any timber elements of your roof structure and even brickwork. If the climbing plant begins to cover skylights or other windows, you could find yourself suffering from a lack of natural light entering your home – not to mention a reduction in the ventilation properties of your windows.

Risks of Climbing Plants & Vines

  • Trapped moisture-Thick layers of vines and leaves can obstruct sunlight. A lack of sunlight lowers the temperature and increases the buildup of moisture, both can affect the masonry of your home.
  • Fire Hazard-Dry vines and branches are flammable and create a fire hazard for your home.
  • Insects-Due to the moisture they collect and their lush surface, vines can be an attractive hotbed for insects. Once these bugs find their way on the vines, they will have quick and easy access into your home, creating a host of insect-related issues.
  • Roots and Tendrils-Climbing vines need something to grip onto as they grow. If your home has brick masonry, that’s where your vines will attach. Vines can create cracks and holes within in the bricks as they grip and grow, creating headaches down the line.
