Testimonial Letter #64

Most people do not understand the role tree roots play in home foundation repair. This testimonial letter is from a client who had two trees too close to his foundation perimeter. During periods of hot, dry weather tree roots and shrubs will absorb large quantities of water from the soil. In areas of expansive soil that will result in additional shrinkage of the soil. Remember, the hot, dry weather is also causing shrinkage by way of evaporation. When the soil shrinks to a significant degree it will lose contact with the bottom of the foundation. Now the foundation has lost its support and its weight, plus the weight of the building structure, will cause the foundation to collapse. The foundation will collapse until it reaches the shrunken soil – its source of support. Bell Bottom Piers should be installed in the areas where the foundation has exhibited movement or damage. Trees and shrubs that are too close to the home should be considered for removal. Or root barricades can be installed to minimize the problems.
