Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What are the risks, and what subsidence issues does the Shipston on Stour Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new building after time has passed in order to make repairs. Subsidence results from a range of factors. For example, water leaking from a broken drainpipe or mains pipe will clear away soil supporting the building structure. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Does a Shipston on Stour Building Survey discuss soil composition the report, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house in Shipston on Stour can have unwanted consequences. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Shipston on Stour house's foundations, forcing them inward. A Shipston on Stour surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Patches of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be a danger of asbestos pipe lagging concealed in the property. What is asbestos, what are the risks and will the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. wall panelling.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken however, on no account to remove the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.
