What is subsidence?
Subsidence occurs when there is downward movement of the ground supporting a building. Specific problems may arise when the movement varies from one part of the building to another.
What are typical causes of subsidence?
Damaged drains around the property can soften or wash away the ground beneath the properties foundations.
Certain soils can be vulnerable to subsidence as they swell and shrink depending on moisture content.
Trees take a lot of moisture from soils, especially large ones. This can cause soil to shrink, therefore changing the geometry of the ground.
Typical signs of subsidence:
The most obvious signs of subsidence are cracks in the buildings walls. Typically they may be more then 3mm wide, diagonal and wider at the top. It is important to remember that not all cracks are a sign of subsidence, therefore a professional opinion is needed.
Cracks may form around week points in a home such as windows and doors.
Some doors and windows may become difficult to open.
