How often should I water my foundation?

Let the soil tell you. When it starts to "shrink away" from the foundation, it's time to water. The south and west sides of a structure will normally need more watering than the north and east sides due to the exposure to the hot, afternoon sun. Also, many large bushes and trees require lots of extra their presence can be a major factor in how much you need to water. We have a maintenance tip sheet that explains how often and how to water

Can trees cause and/or contribute to my foundation problems?

We have found that any large tree or bush can cause foundation settlement of a slab foundation. A few of the "really bad plants" are: Weeping Willow trees, Cottonwood trees, Mulberry trees, Pecan trees, Maple trees, Ash trees, Bradford Pear trees, Red Tipped Phontinia Bushes and Wax Leafed Ligustrum bushes. Studies at the University of Texas have shown that most trees or bushes can have a root system that reaches out as far as the plant is tall! One sure fire way to tell if the water needs of the trees or bushes are causing your foundation problems is to watch and see if your building "goes down" during the growing season and "comes back up" when the plants go dormant in the winter and during several slow, deep soaking rains.

The answers to these questions should help you decide who you want to repair your very valuable property.  Price alone should not be the decision maker for such an investment.
