What Is A Root Barrier?
A root barrier is a form of underground protection against the destruction caused by roaming tree roots. There are several different types of root barrier available on the market, including solid walls made of concrete, which can last indefinitely, chemically treated soil, which lasts about 5 years, and sheets of material that form a sort of blockade. At Solid Rock Foundation Repair, our root barriers are made from a plastic membrane that can last for decades after installation. With three layers, these membranes are incredibly resilient and offer reliable long term protection against roots. Because these membranes are plastic, they can also function as barriers against moisture.
How Does It Work?
After you call our foundation experts, a professional will come out and evaluate your landscape. At this time, they will determine the design of your root barrier, and provide you with an estimate. Next we will send out a crew to dig the appropriate trenches in the required areas. After the trenched are dug, we install the plastic membrane within the trenches. When the membranes are successfully installed in the proper perimeter, we will return the soil to the trenches.
Tree roots, while generally recognized as a potential hazard to residential homes, are often wildly underestimated. Tree roots have the potential to costs your hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in repair. A busted waterline beneath your home could take hours to notice, and waste gallons and gallons of water. Just as bad, a root could cause a foundation crack, which could cost you thousands in repairs as well.
