Prevent Foundation Damage by Installing a Root Barrier

Roots can cause cracking and buckling in your sidewalks, driveway, and patios. Many of the homes with large oak trees in the older areas of Houston like the Houston Medical Center and River Oaks, need root barriers installed to prevent costly cracked slab repairs.

Homes in some of the older neighborhoods in Katy are susceptible to foundation damage from root penetration. Stately homes in the Katy neighborhoods of Kelliwood, Cinco Ranch, Falcon Point, and Rose Dale are also good candidates for foundation root control systems.

“Biobarrier® can last for 15 years or more depending on the quality of the root barrier system installation.”

Biobarrier Rot Control System Installation

Our root barrier installers carefully plan the placement of the root control system in the soil so it provides the maximum amount of protection, preventing the structural damage associated with root encroachment.

Biobarrier® creates such a strong barrier that it causes roots to grow in a different direction, diverting them from damaging your foundation or other concrete structure. Biobarrier® can last for 15 years or more depending on the quality of the root barrier system installation.

root barrier Houston Katy and Fulshear

Our Houston root barriers protect both your hardscape (driveway, sidewalk, and foundation) and your landscaped garden from damaging root encroachment. When tree roots grow under your house, they can cause expensive foundation damage and may also wreak havoc on the plumbing and electrical work.

Quality Root Barrier Systems are Safe for Trees

A quality root barrier system will not adversely affect the health of your trees, garden, or shrubs, and will not prevent the nourishment of the soil from passing through the root barrier to the roots of your trees and shrubs.

Tree roots that grow into the area of the root barrier will merely be redirected, the tree and its roots will not sustain damage from the Biobarrier®. Root barriers created with Biobarrier® can even be used to prevent trees and shrubs from damaging dams, levees, patios, and roads.
