Heatwave leaves tens of thousands of homes at risk of sinking into the ground

This summer’s heatwave leaves tens of thousands of homes at risk of sinking into the ground because the heatwave has shrunk the foundations they are built on.

Symptoms of subsidence like cracked walls usually appear several months after the damage is done which means homeowners may not even know they’ve got problems until a few months later.

Tens of thousands of British homes are at risk of sinking into the ground and those particularly badly hit propertties can take up to take a year to fix causing major upheaval to the homeowners.
