Are you worried about the sturdiness of your foundation? If that’s the case, you should think about getting a root barrier. Most homeowners have planted trees in their yard and near their home for aesthetic appeal as well as to be environmentally conscious. But what most people don’t know is that having trees too close to the structure and foundation of a house may be detrimental and can lead to dangerous is not costly consequences. 

What Is A Root Barrier?

Essentially, root barriers are like a wall that is fitted around the foundation of a business or home or around trees to safeguard certain places of your property from suffering tree root damage. Gonzo Foundation Repair uses root barriers constructed from eco-friendly plastic or geotextile fabric, depending on the site design. These barrier systems assist in altering how the roots grow while not stifling natural root growth and not having a severe impact on other tree or plant life on your premises.

Root barriers can be fitted in commercial or residential areas. Root barriers have two main advantages. First, root barriers assist in tree preservation. Secondly, a root barrier can prevent damage to your driveway(s), foundation, sidewalk(s), pools, and patios. If you want to safeguard your business or home from the potential damage of your structure, contact Gonzo Foundation Repair today at (713) 539-5795 to find out more info.

Safe Root Barrier Installation For Trees

The more you dig to get to the root system with a root barrier, the more you’ll be cutting the root. Poorly fitted root barriers can damage the root systems and trees. The nearer the barrier get to the tree trunk, the more the stability of the tree is compromised. Where the root barrier is positioned shouldn’t limit the soil volume the tree gets nor should the root barrier be positioned near the stem. By doing so, you will be creating an unbalanced and likely unsafe root plate. What’s more, with climate change continually becoming a real threat, we really don’t need to be cutting down trees.

It’s recommended that you enlist experienced and certified arborists for your root barrier installation job to avoid incurring exorbitant expenses in future. The arborists from Gonzo Foundation Repair establish the placement of the root barrier by measuring the diameter of the tree. The tree’s diameter is multiplied by 3.5, from where the root barrier is installed around the tree. This ensures a safe root barrier installation service for both the homeowner and trees.

I have had Gonzo Foundation work on two of my homes in the past 8 years. Our first house shifted a bit a few year after foundation repair, Edward was true to his word and fixed it without charge as per our warranty. His team is very knowledgeable and work was done on time and on budget. I wouldn't hesitate to call on his services again.
