Are Tree Roots Really Damaging Foundations? – Foundation Repair Tip of the Day #175

It’s HUMP Day!🐫which means Brian’s back with another episode of our #FoundationRepair #TipOfTheDay series!
After our recent posts in regards to tree roots, we’ve had a bunch of questions come in… Mainly asking, are tree roots really able to damage a home’s foundation?
Well, in most cases… YES!
In fact, we recently had a project where we found 4″ diameter roots breaking through the slab in the master bedroom in Santa Ana, CA!
Tree roots are searching for moisture, so if there’s a water leak somewhere the roots will find it!

Do you have big trees located close to your home?
