As any of our subsidence engineers will tell you, there are many potential causes of the issue. The design of your structure may have been flawed from the beginning. The effect of water movement in the soil can have an ongoing effect on the problem. And, of course, local vegetation such as nearby trees and plant life can come into play too. Regardless of how much damage has been done, the list of possibilities can become a serious concern. As such, when you’re faced with the effects of subsidence on your home or commercial property, you need to work with people who are responsive, communicative and most importantly, fast acting.
