Subsidence Problems

Subsidence can be caused by many issues, the most common locally is likely to be related to shrinkable clay subsoil, often exacerbated by the presence of trees. However, shallow foundations, made ground, leaking drains, leaking water mains and solution features can also result in subsidence.

It is clearly important to be able to correctly determine the cause of subsidence for the property to be repaired successfully and this is an area where experience counts. We have extensive experience in this area and act as Consultants to several Local Authorities and Housing Associations as well as homeowners.

We can prepare an initial report identifying the problems, specify and organise investigations and prepare calculations and drawings for remedial works such as underpinning and superstructure repairs. We can also prepare a schedule of works to enable the repairs to be tendered.

If you think you have a problem relating to subsidence, telephone 01494 771314 or e-mail
