Tackle Pipe Issues Caused By Tree Roots | Roto-Rooter Blog

Our Portland plumbers have made many service calls for tree root issues. When tree roots enter underground piping, they can cause a variety of issues. While most construction companies have moved from clay or cast iron to plastic pipes, which is a more root-resistant material, powerful roots from large trees can still gain entry into the lines. 

If you are experiencing root issues our plumbers will recommend two options.

• Reline or replace the system of underground pipes

• Have the pipes regularly cleaned and maintained

Both repairs can be on the expensive side; replacing or relining the pipes will treat the problem all at once with one large expense, while the second would be a yearly cost. To schedule service, feel free to call us at (503) 682-9774 or visit our Portland plumber Web site for online scheduling.
