One of our loss adjustor clients instructed JCA Limited to undertake an arboricultural survey and report as part of suspected subsidence damage at a property in Bolton.
In this case the subject property included the house and extension (pool room). Damage in the form of cracking had occurred to the interior and exterior of the property.
Having conducted a detailed survey of the site and information supplied by the loss adjustor, our consultant determined that in this case some subsidence damage had occurred as a result of seasonal soil fluctuations caused by trees within influencing distance of the property. It was believed that the mature vegetation present at the property was likely to be collectively contributing to the damage observed.
