Damage Due to Footings Caused by Trees and Excavations

We all get a bit carried away at Bunnings, but before you buy a car-load of saplings,
remember that you’ve got to maintain a clear space around your house otherwise the
trees can cause damage to the concrete footings. Have a look at the CSIRO fact sheet for
more info.

Also, when you’re getting ready to install that huge heated swimming pool (total reality),
don’t just pick a spot you like and then call that mate of yours who has an excavator, you
have to talk to a qualified engineer who can assess the area. The excavation needs to be
kept away from the footings to avoid any problems. You may have guessed, but damage
caused by trees and excavations isn’t covered by our warranty.
