Preventive Wall Maintenance
When one acquires a property, it is most likely that there are already trees there. If not, many of us would plant trees simply because they’re beautiful and offer a lot of benefits. At times, we would build walls or structures beside or around a tree so we can maximize the property’s space without taking down the tree. If this is the case in your property, then you should know more about preventive wall maintenance and why it is so important.
As a tree grows larger and taller, its roots also grow underground. The roots we see on the surface are just parts of many more roots beneath the soil. When a tree is planted close to a wall, fence or the structure of your home or commercial property, its roots may grow too large and cause the wall or other structures to crack or break apart over time. This is when preventive wall maintenance comes in handy.
Preventive wall maintenance aims to remove those roots that grow too close to walls and other structures. As the name suggests, it is a preventive process so that you can save yourself from all the stress and hassle of costly repairs in the future. You don’t have to wait until it’s too late. At Duval and Son Services, this is one of our most in-demand offers. Our team will come with the necessary tools and equipment to carry out the job properly, safely, and efficiently.
Take a look at the video below of an actual preventive wall maintenance procedure we did for one of our clients.
Using a large grinder-like piece of equipment, we would grind and dig about 4 inches underground so that the roots growing a foot or two from the wall will be cut down without damaging the tree, the ground or the wall itself. This should be done by a professional because one tiny mistake could lead to damage. It may also cause health problems to the tree should the grinding go too far.
