Vines Growing on House

One of the worst things you can do for your wood porch railings, beams, posts, eaves and facia is to let vines grow on them. Pictured here is a huge ivy vine growing all over a house. The vines eventually rot out wood members and encourages mildew growth. This will cause costly repairs involving wood replacement, mildew cleaning and repainting. Some people feel that vines growing on a house is charming and attractive, and it may be, but it isn’t practical or wise.
