As a homeowner, subsidence issues can cause real hardship on one’s financial security, safety and happiness. The sinking or settling of a building’s foundation isn’t just a structural issue; it’s an aesthetic one, too. However, that doesn’t mean to say that it has to stay a permanent problem.

With specialists such as our team behind you, you can win the battle against subsidence, allowing you to focus on repairing any damage. Using state-of-the-art technology combined with our modern resin injection treatment approach, we not only counteract subsidence but also minimise the visual impact.

While we are committed to treating subsidence on a structural level, there are ways that you can refurbish areas once we’ve completed our service. Here, we will deliver practical tips on giving your property a facelift once the cracks have been dealt with and you can resume your day-to-day life.

Why Choose Resin Injections for Subsidence?

First and foremost, we thought we’d offer you a closer insight into our processes and why our solution can’t be beaten in terms of effectiveness and efficiency. Compared to traditional methods such as underpinning, our resin treatments result in a much less invasive solution to subsidence. Using advanced technology and a cutting-edge resin formula, we inject problem areas to fill and stabilise your property’s foundations.

By doing so, any future movement is prevented, and stability is restored, ensuring refurbishments can be complete with a greatly reduced risk of further cracking or structural weakening.

Remember!

You must never ignore the signs of subsidence in your home. Whether it’s cracks near windows or uneven floors, while it could indicate the ageing of a property, it could also be a much more severe issue, such as subsidence damage to your property. So, seek the support of a professional who can offer you expert advice on the matter.

How to Spruce Up Your Home Post
Subsidence Treatment

Now you have a better idea of our methods; it’s time to take a look at how you can spruce up your home once we’ve treated the subsidence. Please note prior to starting any work, you should repair any cracks and clean the treated area with warm, soapy water to ensure the best possible results.

A Fresh Lick of Paint

A paint job is one of the easiest and most effective ways to hide minor cracks and imperfections. By using elastic-based paint, you’ll also allow for slight movement without further cracking in future. To distract away from minor cracks, even more so, try a faux finish such as sponge painting to add texture. This method is particularly helpful when you’ve only seen small cracks in your property.

Wallpaper Wonders

If you are hoping to repair your property damage yourself without the need for a plasterer but struggle to get a clean, smooth finish, by using wallpaper to cover up any signs of old cracks, you can conceal minor flaws or rough surfaces instantly. If you opt for textured wallpaper, it will be even less noticeable. However, please note that with a wallpaper job, it’ll be more challenging to monitor the area for any new signs of subsidence in future.

Fix Your Flooring

Uneven flooring is another common sign of subsidence, and once you’ve had your home’s foundations reinforced, it may be worth considering how you want to level out your floors. In some cases, you may have had issues with floorboards coming away from the walls or separating from each other. If you have a carpeted home, it may be simpler to repair. If you are unsure of how to proceed or whether you will need it to be professionally levelled, our team will be able to give you some advice.

Repair The Little Issues

In some homes, when subsidence is an issue, the skirting boards can lift away from the walls or floor. There can also be problems with tiles no longer sitting straight or plug sockets looking uneven. These are often little details that can be overlooked. Once your home has been treated, you should be able to take action, like securing the skirting boards back into place and instantly improve your home aesthetic.

What We Ask From You

Whether you paint, wallpaper, or simply move around your furniture to hide the treated areas, we ask that you continuously monitor the previously subsided areas, as well as any other areas where subsidence signs often appear, for example, door and window frames. As your property has suffered from this condition already, other high-risk areas could exist. We will identify these areas during your consultation period and treat them if required, but we still ask that you undergo regular inspections to safeguard your home.

The Best Subsidence Solution

Treating subsidence cracks doesn’t have to end with the technical repair work. While our resin solutions can reduce cracks and help smooth out dipped flooring, the above will help you rejuvenate your home after treatment. If you’d like to find out more about our repair services, or you have a question about post-care, get in touch through our online enquiry form. 

We pride ourselves on supporting our clients in every step of recovery, ensuring their home transforms back into the sanctuary they used to be. With that in mind, we strive to provide comprehensive aftercare to give you peace of mind.
