Vegetation & Effects on Foundations – Foundation Repair Tip Of The Day #102

Happy Monday!!
In today’s #FoundationRepair #TipOfTheDay Brian and Mark to discuss another common cause of settling in homes! Vegetation and tree roots can have a massive impact on a home’s foundation. Mark’s seen trees over 40 feet away from a structure send roots that were strong enough to upheave and lift a slab. Not only are the roots devastating in terms of being able to lift slabs, but they also soak up tons of moisture from the clay soils the our homes sit on and I’ve you’ve seen our previous videos you’d know that clay soils expand and contract in the presence of moisture.

We’ll be back tomorrow with another episode!
