Can you introduce our readers to Subsidence Ltd’s services?
Certainly. I suppose the name gives it away. Subsidence Ltd provides a specialist service across the UK, including Lancashire, to address the problem of subsidence in home and business properties. We use a non-invasive, eco-friendly resin injection technique that stabilises buildings effectively, sidestepping the costly and disruptive traditional underpinning methods.
What do you believe sets your company apart in this field?
Our ethos is built on expertise and dedication to tackling the complex problem of subsidence head-on. My role is to guide our strategic direction, ensuring that we not only provide safe and efficient solutions but also foster innovation, particularly through our eco-friendly resin injection method.
How does subsidence affect areas like Lancashire?
Lancashire’s diverse geological conditions can predispose some areas to subsidence, especially where the historical legacy of mining is present. This can lead to structural issues in buildings, which our service is designed to address with minimal impact.
What should property owners be vigilant of regarding subsidence?
Key signs include the emergence or worsening of cracks in walls, sticking doors or windows, and any change in the levelness of floors. If there is subsidence, it’s best to act promptly to mitigate the potential damage. Call us on 0333 1300592 for help.
How do you ensure your work respects Lancashire’s built environment and architectural heritage?
We’re very mindful of the heritage value of Lancashire’s buildings. Our resin injection technique is less invasive and can be conducted without excavation, thus preserving the original character of properties while ensuring their structural safety.
Is your subsidence repair solution environmentally-friendly?
Sustainability is a cornerstone of our practices. We’re committed to reducing waste and energy consumption, and our resin injection technique is evidence of this commitment, requiring less material and producing a lower carbon footprint than traditional methods.
Looking ahead, what trends do you anticipate in the construction and repair industry?
The industry’s future will be heavily influenced by sustainability and technological advancements. We’re actively exploring ways to incorporate eco-friendly practices and digital tools to enhance our subsidence repair services.
Finally, do you have any advice for entrepreneurs starting out in the construction industry?
Knowledge is fundamental, but so is flexibility and the ability to build strong, enduring relationships with clients and partners. In my experience, these relationships are often what underpin long-term business success.
