Contrary to popular opinion, subsidence is often easily remedied, and it is only on rare occasions that a property will need to be underpinned. More often when the tell – tale signs of subsidence are spotted – such as cracks in the wall or doors and windows sticking, this has been caused by the walls or ceilings swelling and shrinking due to temperature fluctuations. This is most common in new homes and can also be part of a settling process. However, it is important to be sure, because there are many potential causes, and that is where we can help. Call Gardner & Co to assess the reasons for your tell tale signs – the worst thing you can do is ignore it!
