ROOT BARRIER INSTALLATION SERVICES
KEEP TREE ROOTS FROM DAMAGING YOUR FOUNDATION AND SIDEWALKS
Redirect tree and plant roots away from hardscapes to prevent costly damage to your foundation. A root barrier is an underground wall that prevents tree roots from damaging your home or business without sacrificing the health of the greenery that shades and decorates your yard. Innovative Foundations in Irving, Texas, can design and install a root barrier system to redirect both new and existing roots away from your property.
Many homes in Texas are built on expansive clay soil making root barriers a necessary investment. When it rains a lot, this soil absorbs moisture and expands. During dry spells, the soil will lose moisture and contract.
CONCRETE SLAB FOUNDATION
WHAT IS A ROOT BARRIER?
If your house is built on a concrete slab foundation, some moisture will remain trapped beneath the house after it rains. This will prompt nearby trees to extend their roots as they seek out moisture, a situation that can lead to serious foundation issues. Central Texas is particularly prone to this issue, which is why Innovative Foundations recommends that all homeowners dealing with excessive moisture and plant growth consider a root barrier.
A root barrier is an underground wall that is installed to protect your foundation and other structures from tree root damage. If you need to contain or block roots from any plant, Innovative Foundations in Irving, Texas, can design and install a custom root barrier to protect your home or business.
THE BENEFITS OF ROOT BARRIERS
WHEN ARE ROOT BARRIERS USEFUL?
Trees offer a lot of benefits not only to your home but to the global ecosystem. They produce oxygen, offer shade, protect your property from high winds, and so much more. Unfortunately, trees can also be a bit of a headache.
As trees grow in size, so do their roots, sometimes up to 3x the length of the tree’s canopy. Due to Texas’ hot climate and dry weather, these tree roots grow towards moist areas. This means intrusive tree roots tend to grow towards the surface– under foundation, driveways, and sidewalks.
Root barriers trap and deflect roots from stealing moisture from your foundation. These barriers also discourage large, destructive roots from growing by changing the direction they grow in (forcing the roots to grow downward or in the other direction). Some other things root barriers do are:
- Control tree roots and invasive species without hurting them
- Retain moisture so plants will continue to thrive
- Protect foundation without using dangerous chemical sprays and pesticides
