We Got to the Root of the Problem

In the prior Green Blog posts I have been sharing the Activities of Correcting the Damage from a Tree that had been growing in a StLouis Brick Building– and Getting to the Root of the Problem.  Well today we removed the Invasive Tree Root, Tuck-pointed the Brick Wall and then added a layer of Stucco to help add a layer of Rigidity and create a Uniform Look to the Brick Wall.

  1. That happens when you don’t maintain your buildings regularly. You got to identify them as soon as possible. Anyway, this wall looks relieved from the tumor. Good luck buddy!
