ROOT BARRIER™ is a specially engineered waterproof cutoff wall that will stabilise and repair foundations and walls with a longterm guarantee.
The team at Root Barrier have become aware of some grout injection company’s advising customers to skip the first stage of remediating on reactive soil. Instead they are being encouraged to go straight to the second stage of injecting grout for the final adjustment of the slab, before patching and painting the house.
This is a recipe for disaster as the final adjustment can’t be made until the base soil is stable, which is the role of a waterproof flexible cut-off wall.
When trees are causing cracks in your foundations, walls or pathways you shouldn’t take the easy way out, but instead be sure to complete all THREE stages of repair to ensure stability and longevity for any construction project:
- Stabilise soil with ROOT BARRIER™ cut-off wall and rehydration
- Use grout/underpinning to make final trim
- Complete building repairs as required
ROOT BARRIER™ has many applications including civil works, residential construction, landscaping applications and services protections.
Filling and painting the cracks in your walls or pathways is not a lasting solution, shortcuts will never give the strength and stability to ensure a longlasting wall. ROOT BARRIER™ will provide the best foundation guarantee solution.
