Thankfully, at League City Foundation Repair, we have a long experience of working with families and real estate workers to make sure that trees and homes are able to co-exist peacefully, without any one causing problems for the other. You’ll be happy to know that, as nature lovers, we always try as hard as we can to keep trees in your garden. Instead, if you are presented with a problem, we can work on ways to solve it by means other than chopping axes!
One of those means is called a ‘root barrier’. It is surprisingly simple! When tree roots are allowed to roam free, they can begin to push on the walls of your house underground. That, mixed with the pressure of the weight of the house, can sometimes cause a problem and render your building structurally unsound. What we can do is to create a physical barrier in the soil between the root and the foundations. Easy, right? Well, yes! However, it is important to consult professionals about this kind of work. At League City Foundation Repair, we won’t just erect a root barrier, we will put it in exactly the right place by using our expertise to judge the likely root pathways in your garden and by thinking along preventative lines. With us, you can be sure your garden remains beautiful and your house remains secure.
