Drainage CCTV Survey in Hampstead, London NW3
Here’s an interesting case study about a customer who had subsidence at their home in Hampstead, London NW3 and how we used CCTV to survey their drainage system and provided them with documentary evidence to present to their insurance company to support their claim.
A customer called and asked for asked us to carry out a Detailed CCTV Survey at their home in Hampstead. Unfortunately, the property had suffered from subsidence and cracks in brick work had begun to show.
Our CCTV survey showed that the damage wasn’t just restricted to the brickwork. Multiple cracks, fractures and displaced joints had appeared throughout pipework.
This could potentially be the cause of the subsidence, as water could be seeping into the foundations of the house. Alternatively, the subsidence could be caused by another problem and seepage from the drainage system could be exacerbating the subsidence problem.
The customer was notified of our findings and a full comprehensive PDF report was provided with photographs and recommended remedial works for the client to provide to their insurance company.
In summary, the recommended works were to line the drains using a no-dig lining solution and install a temporary drainage system until root-cause of the building subsidence had been resolved.
The client was very complimentary about our services and agreed to leave us a review on Google Maps and Trustatrader.Com.
