Home Inspector Finds Tree Eating Home In Plano

This tree is going to  destroy this home if it is not taken care of.

The bad thing is the only way you have to take care of this problem is to cut the tree down.

This is why you should always think about what can happen when you decide to plant a tree.

Trees can be a great addition to a home – they provide beauty, shade and more. However, trees are strong and you should not be fooled into thinking that any part of your home – a brick wall, a concrete wall, your foundation, pipes, or anything else will stop the growth of a tree – they won’t. The tree will kepp growing right through them.

So examine the area carefully before planting a tree to avoid this kind of issue in the future.

And if you’re buying a home now, work with a professional and experienced home inspector in Plano who can help you avoid costly issues like these with your new home.

Home Inspection Plano Roof DamageRoof Damage Identified By Plano Home Inspector

The other day I showed you a tree that was close to the house and I said that it could cause foundation problems to the home.

I also said that I was going to see if the same tree caused any roof problems and I would show you the results. As you can see in this picture, the branches did cause damage to the roof.

Before planting any trees close to your home you should consider what damage the tree could cause as it grows.

As a home inspector in Plano, TX I see a lot of issues like this. Before you choose your home inspector take the time to view their sample home inspection report. This report can help you see the quality of the inspection services.

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.

Finds Foundation Problem

As you can see it is sheared off and away from the home leaving a hole exposed…

The main problem is that water will get into this area and cause problems down the road…

It may cause a mold problem and…

With all the different critters here in Plano Texas you may even get some new pet that you were not expecting…

This would be an easy fix for the owner. So, if you work with an experienced home inspector he can help you by informing you of problems like this before you go to closing. You may be able to negotiate with the owner and have it fixed before you settle.
