1) Vegetation such as trees, shrubs and/or vines are in contact with or less than one foot from the structure's exterior. Vegetation can serve as a conduit for wood destroying insects and may retain moisture against the exterior after it rains. Vegetation should be pruned and/or removed as necessary to maintain a one foot clearance between it and the structure's exterior. There is a large hole in the siding where the water line exits the rear of the home. this should be sealed to prevent insects and rodents from entering the home. Two plants have roots growing into the siding on the rear of the home. these roots should be removed to prevent the siding from splitting or being loosened.
