Geobear - The clean, hassle-free solution to subsidence & sinking floors
Geobear use an advanced geo-polymer resin to solve subsidence issues in just 1-2 days without the disruption and cost of traditional underpinning.
- Work completed in just 1-2 days
- Clean and easy - no need to move out
- Our work is guaranteed for 10 years
How do we resolve subsidence in just 2 days?
Our experts drill holes in the affected area
At just 16mm they're typically the size of a 10p and often we don't even need internal access
We inject a special geo-polymer resin
In a quick and easy process we inject a special resin that will expand and harden to support the property.
The resin instantly hardens like concrete
Within just 15 minutes the resin has expanded to fill any voids and stabilise the ground and is already 90% cured
The property is raised and foundations stabilised
You'll see the results instantly. Often cracks disappear and doors unstick as we raise the property.
I am a Chartered Building surveyor specialising in building defects and I have used Geobear several times over the years to help resolve sunken floors and ground instability. I have always found them to be very professional and I would not hesitate to use them again or to recommend them to others.Alan Holmes DipSurv, MRICS, MCIAT, MCIOB.

Difficult to access site? We just need to park our truck outside and use 100m hoses to deliver the resin. We can work on even the hardest to access sites.
The work itself took less than a day to complete and apart from clearing the room there was hardly any disruption at all. The team were polite and professional. We feel confident the work has been done to a high standard and solved the problem. It is guaranteed and achieved for a very reasonable price. We fully recommend Geobear.

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens to any cracks in the walls?
Wall cracks may close up as the building is raised, allowing simple final repairs to follow. Windows and doors will often unstick and work properly again.
We've treated over 100,000 structures worldwide
Each project is different and the time depends on the amount of lift needed, the area which needs treatment and the ground conditions. Most projects are fully completed within 1-2 days.
Do I need to move out?
Most projects won't require the occupants to move out of their home and they may not even need to move furniture.
How many projects have you completed?
Geobear (formerly Uretek) have completed over 200,000 projects worldwide over the last 40 years. We've completed over 11,000 residential projects in the UK as well as major engineering projects for the NHS, Network Rail and the Highways Agency.
Will there be a mess?
Very little, if any. Our geo-polymer resin is injected through tiny holes drilled in the ground. It's a bit like "keyhole surgery" so there is minimal excavation, disruption and mess. Nearly all our work is done outside the property and you don't need to move out.
Do I get a warranty?
The work comes with a 10 year insurance-backed warranty, which can be passed on if you choose to sell the property.
Is it safe and environmentally friendly?
Our resin is environmentally inert and has no detrimental effects on the environment.
Who will carry out and be resonsible for the work?
The work at your property will be carried out by our highly experienced technicians (most have been working for us for over 7 years).
