    Step by step: how do we resolve subsidence in 1-2 days?

    1.

    Our experts drill holes in the affected area

    At just 16mm they're typically the size of a 10p and often we don't need internal access

    2.

    We inject a special geopolymer resin

    In a quick and easy process the material will expand and harden to support the property.

    3.

    The resin instantly hardens like concrete

    Within just 15 minutes the resin has expanded to fill any voids and stabilise the ground

    4.

    The property is raised and foundations stabilised

    You'll see the results instantly. Often cracks disappear and doors unstick if we raise the property.

      FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

      The soils beneath the foundation will be stabilised to prevent further movement (subsidence). In many cases, the expansion force of our geopolymer can also lift the structure and you could see cracks close and windows and doors will function properly.

      Generally, yes. But each project is different and the time depends on the stabilisation required, the scale of the area needing repair, and ground conditions. Most projects are fully completed within 1-2 days.

      No. We usually do our work outside the property, so you can carry on as normal. On occasion, we may need to enter the property to treat or monitor depending on the requirements.

      Geobear (formerly Uretek) has completed over 200,000 projects worldwide over the last 40 years. We have completed more than 11 000 residential projects in the UK, Finland, Sweden and Poland. We have strengthened residential buildings, industrial facilities and infrastructure.

      Little, if any. Our geopolymer resin is injected through small holes drilled into the ground. It's a bit like "keyhole surgery," so there will be minimal excavation, disruption and mess. On the other hand, the work is unobtrusive and non-invasive enough that you can carry on with your normal home life while it's happening, without having to move.

      YES, the work is covered by an insurance guarantee that you can transfer if you decide to sell the property.

      Our resin is inert and has no harmful effect on the environment.

      The work on your property will be conducted by our experienced technicians.

      Yes, you will receive a certificate of structural adequacy (CSA).
