HOW DO ROOT BARRIERS WORK?
Friar Foundation Repair knows the clay-based soil here in the North Texas region! Because there is a high clay percentage, the soil moisture tends to fluctuate. When you combine that fact with drought-like conditions or periods of heavy rainfall, the moisture will cause your foundation to weaken and eventually become damaged. A root barrier is an answer! Root barriers guard your foundation and protect the foundation from the roots of plants and growing trees. If the roots are not controlled, you risk that your foundation will be severely damaged. There are 3 different types of root barriers that we strongly suggest:
- Root traps or screens
- Chemical inhibitors
- Root deflectors
Extensive studies of root barriers have concluded that even when roots may grow under sidewalks or very close to your foundation, a root barrier will guard your foundation and your sidewalks from serious damage.
WHAT IS A ROOT BARRIER?
As your trees and shrubs grow, the pressure from the roots can inflict serious pressure upon your foundation. A root barrier acts as a protective shield! The root barrier is most often installed between the concrete foundation and adjacent trees. Here at Friar Foundation Repair, we have extensive experience with installing root barriers! This fact will give you peace of mind in knowing that the root barrier you need will be installed by us quickly, efficiently, and with flawless precision and accuracy!
