What is subsidence?
Subsidence is the downward movement of a surface, causing the ground beneath the foundations of a building to become unstable.
Common reasons for subsidence are:
The shrinking of soil beneath a property
Previous mining activity on the site
Soil shrinkage can be caused by a number of factors, such as water leaking into the soil under the property, as this can wash away the soil from the foundations. This is most common in soils with a high sand or gravel content.
Clay soils which are common in Bristol are particularly vulnerable to shrinkage, and as the soil shrinks, it pulls the foundations which may result in structural movement. Clay soil shrinkage can also occur following a dry spell of weather.
