What do internal subsidence cracks look like?

The structural integrity of every domestic property is paramount and among the potential threats lies internal subsidence; a phenomenon marked by ground movement and settling beneath structures. Recognising the indications of this subsidence is critical, particularly in the context of cracks that appear within interior spaces in your home.

Internal subsidence damage is a consequence of ground movement and settling, driven by factors such as changes in soil moisture, geological shifts, or the presence of underground voids such as mines for example. The resulting stress on a structure’s foundation becomes visually apparent through the development of cracks in walls.

If you are unsure if your cracks are something more serious, read our post here on when you should worry about cracks in walls.

Buying a home without paying for a building survey

Structures affected by internal subsidence often exhibit differential movement, where distinct areas undergo displacement relative to others. This phenomenon contributes significantly to crack development. Observing misalignments in doors and windows, along with discernible gaps between walls and floors, provides further evidence of this phenomenon.

Internal subsidence cracks are accompanied by additional symptoms that serve as red flags. Misaligned doors and windows, difficulty in closure, widening gaps between walls and floors, and even sinking floors are indicative of the structural challenges associated with subsidence.
