Tree Roots Causing Foundation Damage

Case Study #6


This Tecumseh homeowner had a beautiful backyard with a very old tree close to the home. Over the many years, its roots spanned outward in search of water… and came into contact with the home’s foundation. Over time, the pressure from the roots made the foundation crack and bow outward. It had become increasingly unstable and needed a solution fast. Luckily, they called Supreme Basement Solutions.

Our sales rep Mike prescribed this foundation wall the SafeBase™ Carbon Fiber solution. It is the strongest bowed wall repair system in the industry, using the same material that high performance race cars use! Our team filled the cracks, then installed the Carbon Fiber strips, which are attached to patented designed SafeBase™ brackets, then coated with an epoxy resin, locking it in place. With a 25 year transferable warranty, the foundation wall is not going anywhere for a very long time.

Afterward, a vapour barrier, SafeDrain™ System, and Pro Series Sump Pump were installed to ensure no moisture will enter through the damaged foundation wall. Next step? Remove that tree!
