Causes of Foundation Damage: Vegetation
Foundation damage can occur in a multitude of ways. As many homeowners are aware, trees and vegetation have the potential to damage your home’s foundation. However, this damage is not caused by roots growing into your home’s foundation. Rather, when trees are planted near your home’s foundation, they tend to draw water towards your home. This, in turn, will increase the moisture content of the soil around your home’s foundation, potentially leading to problems like heaving or water damage.
If you suspect that your home’s foundation might be suffering damage due to your yard’s vegetation, contact a foundation repair professional immediately. Our foundation repair experts can use methods like concrete pressed pilings to repair your home’s foundation and prevent future damage. Our repair technicians are also proficient in employing steel pressed pilings for foundation repair. To learn more about our services, call Structured Foundation Repairs, Inc. at 972-484-1200.
