Home Inspection Plano – Finds Tree Problems

Home Inspection Plano Tree Problems

As you can see this home in Plano has a tree problem. When a tree is this close to your home it can cause some serious problems to your foundation. Some people would just cut the tree down and problem solved.

Not everyone wants to cut down their trees so what else can you do to save your foundation and the tree?

You could consider the installation of a root barrier to reduce the possibility of damage to the foundation from tree roots and moisture removal.

Another problem with trees being this close to the house is roof damage. I will be looking at the roof next and I will show you if there is any damage.

    One effective way to combat moisture is by the use of desiccants like Silica Gel. These are the same small sachets you find in packaging of various products like electronics, garments, etc. Silica Gel works by absorbing the moisture in its surrounding area. For most moisture challenges, does the job. With small sachets cost less than a dollar, it truly is a cost effective way of protection from moisture. There is a lot more information and an order form on our website at http://www.SilicaGel.net
