Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw cracks down the gable wall when we last viewed the home. What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report reveal?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. New buildings in Biddulph and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. Less common than subsidence, but potentially as destructive, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high gravel content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. In some cases, the presence of organic material, which then decomposes, can also destabilise all or part of a foundation. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
