Due to improper planting techniques and the structure of your home, a large tree located adjacent to your home can cause major issues for you. It may cause your foundation to settle. Due to moisture loss in the soil, that side of your home may have settled while others have not, therefore producing a void.
When this voided area becomes too large, you’ll start to see cracks in your foundation which can lead to all sorts of problems. Don’t be worried, there are always solutions and we provide them!
Root barricades aren’t a full-proof solution but they do help. One’s first inclination is to say, “Why don’t you just remove all the roots?” Well since the roots are a tree’s basic way to eat or absorb nutrients. We would effectively be killing your tree. Roots are also part of a tree’s structural support, if we ripped them out, the tree could collapse on your home.
The truth is, is severe foundation damage situations, we have had to fully remove trees. This is the only way to prevent further damage from occurring.
