Foundation settlement and house foundation movement problems are surprisingly common and experienced across Australia. This is mainly because buildings or houses are heavy and some types of soils have poor load-bearing capability. Foundation settlement typically occurs when soil compresses (settles) or is washed away because of heavy rain or a water leak. This is common in both residential and commercial structures and can be damaging to your home or business.
Some of the signs are wet basements, doors and windows that stick or if you find a crack in your foundation wall. If you have noticed any of these signs, contact us and talk to one of our engineers. At JHA Australia, we have the technology to provide you with options to rectify the problem!
Subsidence is the downward movement of the ground that supports the building. In the worst cases, cracking can be a sign of subsidence. This can be due to a range of factors, including clay soils, trees, and shrubs close to your dwelling.
