When trees grow near structures and hardscapes, the roots can often cause distortion or cracking. Additionally, structures built on certain types of soil may suffer damage resulting from moisture extraction by roots.

A visual inspection by a qualified consultant should be combined with historical information as well as evidence from soil testing, structural engineers’ reports and level and crack monitoring reports.
