Are Tree Roots Causing Concrete Cracks Around Your Home?

A Common Problem With Concrete, Tree Roots Can Cause Homeowner Headaches

When you think of trees are part of your yard’s landscape, generally, you think of pleasant thoughts. Trees provide shade, they turn beautiful colors in the fall, and they add character to any yard. That being said, they can also be a major cause of homeowner headaches. As your tree grows, the root system grows with it. Before you know it, the roots can encroach on sidewalks, driveways, and patios.  The bigger the roots, the bigger the problem, leading to concrete cracks, shifting, tripping hazards, and more. What can be done?

It’s Not the Trees Fault It’s All In the Soil

Tree roots directly impact the soil around your home. As roots grow and move through different types of soil they impact the soil conditions and ultimately the concrete structures situated in the soil around the tree. Due to this activity, the result is often concrete settling, which causes the cracks and shifting that you see. You may even see the concrete buckle and break apart in places.

What Can Be Done to Repair Buckled, Cracked, or Settled Concrete?
