Protect Your Foundation with Root Barriers

Root barrier installation is a crucial service that cannot be overlooked in foundation maintenance and protection. It is a preventive measure that safeguards your foundation from the potential damage caused by invasive tree roots. RS Foundations in Fort Worth, TX, a leading name in the industry, excels in providing professional root barrier services, ensuring the longevity of your structures.

What are Root Barriers?

Root barriers are physical barriers installed underground to redirect the growth of tree roots away from your foundation. These barriers are typically made from concrete, plastic, or other durable materials. They serve as a protective shield, preventing tree roots from reaching the foundation and causing harm.

Why Install Tree Root Barriers?

Tree roots can pose a significant risk to the foundations of structures. As they grow, they can penetrate the soil surrounding the foundation, leading to ground instability and moisture imbalance. This can result in foundation cracks and other structural issues. By installing root barriers, you can protect your foundation from these potential threats.

The Root Barrier Installation Process

The process of root barrier installation involves several key steps:

  1. Identifying the Risk: The first step is identifying trees with roots that present a potential risk to the foundation.

  2. Trenching: A trench is dug around the tree at a suitable distance from the trunk. The depth of the trench depends on the tree's root system and the soil type.

  3. Installing the Barrier: The root barrier is then placed into the trench. It is installed at a depth that prevents roots from growing beneath it.

  4. Backfilling: The trench is backfilled with soil, ensuring the barrier is securely in place.

  5. Maintenance: Regular checks are necessary to ensure the barrier remains effective and the tree's health is not adversely affected.

"Michael from RS Foundations came to my home in Forney to givr a foundation estimate. I was nervous knowing that these types of repairs can get expensive fast. I was fortunate that I did not need any foundation work, and Michael was completely honest about that fact, and gave me some foundation watering solutions! He was extremely professional and friendly, kept me informed the entire time he was taking measurements. Obviously my situation is a good one, but you can be sure they will be honest with you, which is worth its weight in gold!! Definitely recommend!!"
