House Foundation Root Barrier

House Foundation Root Barrier Caused by RootsWhen it comes to a house foundation the expansive soil in North Texas frequently causes movement of foundations due to trees and shrubs sucking moisture away from a house foundation. Slab foundation homes are particularly vulnerable. Trees have extensive tap root systems that extract large amounts of water from the soil, which can cause major damage and require home foundation repair. These trees remove disproportionate amounts of moisture from soil causing it to shrink away from your foundation. When this void get large enough the foundation will collapse to find its support, causing one or more cracks in the home foundation. A foundation that is dry in one area and moist in another will crack. Prevent this type of damage with a root barrier, which can stop thirsty trees from drawing moisture away from the soil underneath a building. Even flower beds that are up against a home’s foundation can create too much water in the soil and create issues beneath the foundation.
