Ground Subsidence

We've been providing ground subsidence remediation services for over 30 years.

What is Ground Subsidence?

Ground subsidence is the downward movement of the foundations of a building or structure. In most cases, this is due to changes in the underlying soil conditions. Sometimes, the problem is associated to heave or the upward movement of the underlying ground. Landslip may also contribute. If foundations are built on a slope, the ground can begin to slowly slide down, damaging foundations.

Large trees and plants, water damage and the type of soils foundations are built on are factors, too. For more information, please visit our Common Causes page.

This problem is, of course, something that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. Uretek provides ground subsidence solutions for any structure or infrastructure, repairing them back to prime condition. Our methods reverse the effects of collapse inducing factors, helping you carry on with your day-to-day life.
