Subsidence can be a serious issue if it is not sorted as soon as possible. For this reason, it is important to understand the signs of subsidence. Having been carrying out property refurbishments in Chichester and Worthing for many years, our house builders know exactly what to look out for. Phase One Build advises customers on the signs to help you notice potential issues with your building.
For example, big cracks that emerge from smaller ones around doors and windows are a cause for concern. Likewise, cracks larger than 3mm in width on the outside of a property can indicate structural problems.
It is vital to check for subsidence before carrying out property refurbishments or property extensions.
