Root Barriers

Trees and large shrubs require a lot of water. As soils get dry around the root systems they will naturally extend and branch out in the direction of moisture, sometimes robbing it from under the foundation. This causes soil under the foundation to dry contract, and the foundation to settle. Over time, this can cause permanent damage to foundations, driveways, sidewalks and patios. A-Plus Foundation Repair Company installs underground root barriers between trees or large bushes and your foundation. A root barrier is normally about 35 inches deep and blocks the tree's roots from growing toward the foundation down to that level. Root barriers are a cost effective way to promote moisture stabilization. Call for a free estimate.
