Step by step: how do we resolve subsidence in 1-2 days?
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
We inject a special geopolymer resin
In a quick and easy process the material will expand and harden to support the property.
The resin instantly hardens like concrete
Within just 15 minutes the resin has expanded to fill any voids and stabilise the ground
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.
