Foundation Damage of Houses Surrounded by trees

The first signs of foundation difficulties that a homeowner observes are cracked walls and windows. While foundation damage can occur for various reasons, specific foundation issues can be related to trees. Large trees that grow close to your house might cause foundation damage by sucking water from the soil surrounding it.

If trees surround your house and you notice any cracks, it is wise not to wait and call a professional who can help you. At My Foundation Pros, our contractors are licensed, insured, experienced, hard-working, and can repair your foundation damaged due to tree roots.

Foundation Damage Caused by Tree Roots

Seasonal changes affect tree roots differently, especially when soil moisture levels shift. Roots absorb a lot of water during the rainy season, which can lead them to expand. When the dry season arrives, the earth loses moisture and the roots shrink. The soil is disturbed by continual expansion and contraction. If the roots grow too close to the foundation, the soil will become unstable and its integrity will be compromised. As a result, the foundation's stability will be compromised, resulting in cracking.

If the tree is healthy and preservation is a top priority, a professional expert can analyze the risk of foundation damage. If your property has already been damaged, foundation repair specialists near you can evaluate the best solution.
