So I've talked a little about the walk around and what to look for on the house but with the recent storm that hit the Barrie area I thought I might take a second ad get you thinking outside the box. When you are walking around the house do not for get to look at the trees and grading around the house. When we clear a lot we thin the trees out to make room for our dream homes but when we do that we weaken the strength of the forest. Think of it this way many many sticks in a bundle are strong but when we start removing sticks from the bundle it gets weaker. Now that we have cleared the lot the forest that was once there is now weaker because the trees were breaking the wind together and the remaining trees are not use to the added wind pressure around them. We may have also taken some of the root structure from those trees as well. Keep an eye on them and if they start to grow over the house it might be time to call in a professional and have them removed.
Well, I think after a very long winter Mother Nature has finally brought us Spring. So what now? It is time to take your semi annual walk around the house.
