Social Housing Subsidence Repair
Subsidence issues are a huge concern to homeowners and local councils across the UK. In recent years, claims
for subsidence related damage has been increasing. The increase in claims may be related to several factors
• Changes in climate
• Changes to ground soils due to natural and environmental factors
• Disruption from construction work causing changes to ground soils
• Water damage from burst pipes
Regardless of the cause, subsidence damage continues incur massive costs to local authorities nationwide. With
increasing cases of subsidence damage occurring, it is important that Housing Associations act fast to reduce
damage, protect tenants, and mitigate revenue losses.
Social Housing Subsidence Repair With Resin Injection Technology
We provide Local Authorities and Housing Associations with a non-disruptive solution to house subsidence.
Our teams of experienced engineers are proficient in the fast prevention and repair of subsidence damage. We
work across a variety of industries and we understand the needs of our clients.
For customers in the Social
Housing sector, we understand the importance of speed and convenience. The health and safety of tenants is of
paramount importance, that is why we act quickly to assess the extent of the subsidence related issue, and
waste no time in getting to work. We also recognise the tight budgets that Local Authorities and Housing
Associations have to work with.
This is why we specialise in a non-disruptive method of ground repair, that
does not require any digging or excavation, therefore greatly reducing the costs incurred. Furthermore, when
subsidence repair work is carried out by Resin Injection Technology , tenants do not need to vacate the property, this removes the
high costs of providing temporary accommodation to tenants, whilst providing them with a far less disruptive
The benefits of acting preemptively when subsidence occurs cannot be understated. If tenants report cracked
walls, skirting boards or any other common signs of subsidence, it is important that landlords and Local
Authorities arrange an investigation into the cause. Resin Injection Technology use cutting edge, surveying technology that does not
require any digging, and can be carried out in a short amount of time.
By acting quickly to assess the extent
of the issue, Resin Injection Technology can establish the correct course of action. If it is the case that ground repairs need to
take place, Resin Injection Technology ensure that all work is carried out to the highest standard by a team of experienced
Treatment for Subsidence
Resin Injection Technology specialises in the injection of expanding resin materials under the affected property. As the resin
material expands, the gaps in the soil are filled and water build up is forced out. This results in the
stabilisation of the foundations of the property.
As the voids beneath the foundations are filled, the soil will push against the foundations of the property.
Using precise measurement technology, the team at Resin Injection Technology are able to correct the foundational issues depending on
their severity, if ground lifting is not required, we are able to correctly and evenly measure the necessary
injection points in the affected foundations. Alternatively, if ground lifting is needed, we will continue to
inject until the floor is at the required level.
By using Resin Injection Technology for subsidence repair, Local Authorities and Housing Associations will benefit from a
non-invasive, fast alternative to traditional groundwork. There is no excavation, and is by far the most
convenient solution to subsidence related issues.
Consequences of Subsidence
Subsidence can cause a variety of problems to a property. It is important that fast action is taken to avoid
these problems escalating. Some of the consequences of subsidence include:
• Electrical faults
• Plumbing faults
• Doors and windows not opening and closing properly
• Structural changes to the property
If left unresolved, these issues can lead to significantly dangerous scenarios. It is therefore imperative
that work is done quickly to avoid massive risks to health and safety, as well as the huge financial cost of
repairing damage caused by subsidence.
Resin Injection Technology have worked closely with Councils and Housing Associations across the UK to provide professional,
non-disruptive solutions to housing subsidence for many years.
We prioritise safety and convenience, whilst
acknowledging the financial implications of ground related issues. This is why We provide the most up to date
surveying technology to identify the issue before any work takes place.
Once work begins, Resin Injection Technology are able to
carry out repair work using modern non-disruptive solutions that would typically take much longer if other
traditional methods of subsidence repair were used.
