Plant Parts On House

Leftover plant roots are plant parts on a stucco wall is a sure sign that there was at one time a vining plant growing on the house.

These are dead giveaways for a home inspector when you know what you are looking for.

I would advise you to look under the roof eave to make sure the plant has not grown into the roof or through one of the vent blocks.

This house of course has no damage and it was a good thing that they removed the plant. In a situation like this if you enjoy looking at a vining plant on your home, let me at least make a suggestion. Maintain the plant and keep it from growing onto your roofing.

Once the plant starts to grow on your roof it can actually grow underneath the roof shingles and work its way into the attic. This situation over time will definitely create a roof leak.
