Vine climbing up my house.. problem?

3553 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Maintenance 6

This vine is growing on my house. My wife likes how it looks. I don't really care. I think that it's growing into my attic.

Can these cause any structural problems?

Should I chop it down?

Is there anything that I should be aware of?

Vines can be very intrusive
They can dig into the mortar of the brick & as they grow dislodge the mortar
Any crack they find they can grow into
I've grown roses at one house
Another house I had ivy & it was growing under the shingles & making a mess
