Why are Creepers, Climbers and Ivy a problem?
Few are aware that year on year, creepers, climbers and ivy cause vast amounts of costly damage to properties right across the United Kingdom every year.
While it’s true that they can bring a particular element of classic style and tradition to a property, the potential damage they can cause is something that you must not ignore.
Some examples of the issues that can arise from unmanaged climbers, creepers and ivy include:
- Penetration and damage to pointing and brickwork
- Movement or damage to soffits, fascias and guttering
- The weakening and accelerated rotting of wooden elements such as window frames, external beams or doors
- Movement and damage to roof tiles or roofing
These issues, either individually or combined, often lead to leaks and damp problems which can cost a significant amount to put right.
