If your property is being affected by subsidence, we can cure the issue in just one day. (Watch the clip of our solution on Channel 4's 'Help my House is Falling Down')
Subsidence happens when the ground beneath your home is no longer strong enough to take the weight of the property. Originally, the property will have been built on foundations suited to the environment, but unforseen factors over time will affect the strength of soil beneath the foundation, the result is concrete floors sinking or the side of houses subsiding.
There are a number of common reasons for subsidence to happen, they can include shrinking clay soil due to dry weather; excessive water saturation from a leaking drain or flooding, tree removal or inadequate foundations on the original construction. Any one of these factors will change the soil, making it weaker and your house subside; Uretek can restore the strength of the soil and stop the subsidence.
