Is clay soil an issue in Llandysul? Can we expect the House Survey to mention this?
Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil, with groundwater level variations and swelling of the soil being relatively common. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly, such as small cracks in the bathroom wall. There is a real benefit in booking a Llandysul surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
