The Difference Between Settlement and Subsidence

What is settlement?

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.
