Hire True Blue Roofing to Remove the Branches on the Roof

After a winter storm or even a windstorm, there are usually branches on the driveway, sidewalk, or the yard. While moving branches from the ground can be done yourself or with the help of a neighbor, please avoid attempting to take branches off of the roof. A home roof with one or several branches on it may have damaged the roof. There may be holes, cracked or missing shingles, or damage under the roof.

It may be tempting to grab the ladder and climb up to inspect the roof. Once at the rain gutters, one might reach for a branch thinking it will slide to them without problems. However, branches can be stuck in the roof or tangled with other branches. No one wants to spend the time and money sitting in an Emergency Room after falling from the ladder with a branch hitting them as they land. Call True Blue Roofing who are professionals at taking branches off wet, slick, and even icy roofs.
