what is subsidence, and why does it happen?
Subsidence occurs when the foundations of your property begin to sink because the soil underneath shrinks or becomes unstable. If left untreated, it can cause significant damage to the structural integrity of your building.
If your property has subsidence, you’ll notice large, diagonal cracks appearing in your walls. Existing cracks may get bigger and deeper; wallpaper may begin to ripple; and doors and windows may start to stick because their frames are changing shape.
The issue is especially prevalent in areas with clay soil, as it’s prone to shrinking and expanding in the summer and winter seasons. However, it can be caused by other factors, such as nearby roots and trees, which may be responsible for the desiccation of the clay soil.
