Unstable Foundations

Subsidence and heave both affect a building’s foundations. Subsidence is the downward movement of those foundations, while heave is the upward. Both can cause internal and external issues, as a property sinks or shifts in response to impacts on the earth beneath. 

Various factors can affect the foundations of your property, including vibration and nearby construction work, explosions, oil spillages, or damage caused by tree roots.

Your Aspray Loss Assessor can instruct experts in the field of engineering and surveying, who can recommend what needs to be done to correctly stabilise the property and prevent future issues. 

When claiming for subsidence or heave, you need to prepare for the long haul, as investigations into the cause are likely to take at least 12 months. Given the complexity of such claims, many homeowners recognise that handling a claim is not something they can do by themselves. 

By instructing Aspray, we will take care of it all.
