Protecting Foundation Piers with Root Barrier in Frisco

The foundation of your home is a crucial aspect in its upkeep. When you have work done to improve it, you have to make sure that no other factors will affect it like tree roots creeping into the foundation or the piers.

Our client in Frisco had us install piers in front of their home a couple months ago. However, a tree close to where we installed them could possibly grow roots into those areas and cause some foundation issues again in the future. A structural engineer our client hired recommended a root barrier as a solution, so they called us again to install it.

Installing Root Barrier in Frisco

We first started measuring the area where the root barrier is needed to be installed. Then, we started digging out a trench following the pattern of their front garden bed edge – right in between the tree and the area where we installed the piers.

We already encountered a lot of roots, which took us a longer time. But after a couple of hours, we were able to install the root barrier, and replace the dirt we dug out.
