As the UK’s leading subsidence repair specialist, Geobear is proud to be able to offer non-disruptive, innovative subsidence solutions to domestic and commercial customers alike. With 40 years of knowledge and experience at the heart of everything we do, together with a team of highly skilled professionals at the helm of our operations, you’ll always be able to look to Geobear for fast, cost-effective solutions that’ll last for many years to come.


Choose Geobear for effective and reliable subsidence solutions

When choosing a company to carry out subsidence solutions on their home or business, one of the first considerations people make is the heritage, performance and reputation of the company offering the service. Here at Geobear, we have four decades of experience in the industry, acquiring copious amounts of specialist knowledge and skill during that time. 

We’re proud to have invented the process of ground injection using geopolymer to ensure the structures we work with are solid and stable once again. Due to the research and development investment we made subsequently, the business expanded and grew into what it is today.

With the help of our skilled, professional team ensuring exceptional results when it comes to subsidence repairs, together with the unrivalled customer service we’re proud to provide our clients, Geobear has received hundreds of highly positive reviews over the last five year – evidence of our ongoing commitment to our work and our customers. All of our honest, transparent reviews have been independently verified on the reviews.io platform, giving us an average score of 4.75 out of 5.

But it’s not only our private homeowner customers who endorse the solutions Geobear provides. Many of our projects are for loss adjusters where a subsidence repair has come via an insurance claim. We are the chosen subsidence repair contractor for many loss adjusters; in particular, we partner with L&G and Segwick to deliver subsidence solutions to their customers. Due to our absolute dedication, our partnership has won three industry awards for excellence in delivering fast subsidence solutions to insurance customers, reducing their overall claims time.


You’ll always be able to rely on our professional subsidence repair team

Taking note of specific details within guarantee conditions is essential. Geobear takes pride in having an insurance backed guarantee for your absolute peace of mind. This will provide the customer with the cover they need in the unlikely event that Geobear can no longer trade. If there is evidence that Geobear was at fault and is the sole reason for any failure, then the insurers will carry out any remedial works at their expense. 

Whilst there is absolutely no reason for Geobear not to be providing reliable subsidence solutions near you in the future, this is a typical industry requirement to support and reassure the customer should this unlikely event arise.


Our highly skilled specialists provide long-lasting subsidence solutions

The level of skill and experience our team has is undeniable because we understand that delivering ground stabilisation and subsidence repair projects requires a high level of technical competence. The senior technicians we’re proud to have at the forefront of our operations, who will be working on your home, will be first-class, all with many years of relevant experience, with some spanning decades. 

Geobear is absolutely committed to providing employees with the most appropriate comprehensive training and continual development programmes to ensure they maintain a rigorous level of professionalism, quality and care in everything they do. 

The Area Manager you’ll be assigned will have designed a bespoke subsidence solution for your property, whether it be for domestic or commercial purposes. Our experts have been through intensive training programmes and rigorous onboarding processes when joining Geobear, so you’ll have complete peace of mind when it comes to a competent, effective and reliable subsidence solution design, regardless of the site situation. 

Furthermore, your design will go through an extensive internal review process where it’ll then be signed off by a highly qualified Commercial Director and Engineering Director, both of whom will have decades of knowledge and experience in foundation engineering.

To finalise the process, and provide even more reassurance for our customers, a Chartered Engineer will then approve a proposal that’ll be issued to you in an efficient, timely manner. This final approval will permit a Certificate of Structural Adequacy to be issued post-works for you to retain for your records. 


Geobear are proud to have a number of third-party accreditations

Many construction and engineering companies are accredited to ensure quality control is in place for all of their processes. Assessing the accreditations can provide the customer with the assurance and peace of mind that the company they choose is ‘fit for purpose’ and houses the professionalism required to deliver project excellence.

Geobear has a British Board of Agrément Certificate – an independent, regulated body for the UK construction industry that helps to create accountability and mitigate risk. This Certificate is a mark of excellence based on rigorous national and European standards that validate a construction product’s specialist formulation, capability and uniqueness.

Achieving this certificate reassures our customers that our methods are tried, tested and meticulously scrutinised by an independent body. The rigorous protocols that the BBA have in place are to ensure the construction industry acts with integrity and validates Geobear’s professional approach to delivering our services, including subsidence solutions.

Furthermore, our team of engineers are members of a number of professional bodies, including the Institute of Civil Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers and Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. Geobear is also proud to have Link-Up, Constructionline Gold, Safe Contractor and CHAS accreditations in the UK,  in addition to having certification to ISO 9001:2015.


Benefit from fast and non-disruptive subsidence solutions from Geobear

Here at Geobear, we seek to serve our customers to the level of urgency and quality they require and deserve. The way in which this is done will be agreed upon with the client during the first point of contact. But rest assured that we’ll be able to accommodate imminent response time requests,  regardless of the fact that our standard response times vary, as described below.

As a Geobear customer, the speed at which a contractor can deal with your case is usually determined by supply and demand. In the area of subsidence, this is commonly governed by seasonality, so in the summer months, where there has been a lot of clay desiccation due to dry weather, the lead times may be slightly longer.

Despite this, when subsidence repair projects are carried out, it’ll be done with absolute skill and precision using a geopolymer resin injection method. This ensures that, when providing subsidence solutions, the minimal mess is created and very little disruption is caused, making our subsidence repair method among the most efficient and favourable. You won’t have to vacate your home or worry about mud and soil being walked through your home with the Geobear subsidence repair solution.

If you’re looking for fast, reliable and long-lasting subsidence repair results, then you’ll always be able to count on our team here at Geobear.


We’re committed to keeping our carbon footprint to an absolute minimum

The future of our planet is an essential consideration for all of us. In our daily lives, we often make decisions that are founded upon environmental impact, and that’s one of our main aims here at Geobear. We endeavour to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum, ensuring our subsidence solutions are as environmentally friendly as possible.

When choosing a contractor to rectify subsidence in your area, you may also wish to think about their credentials in terms of carbon generation. Geobear’s method, in comparison to alternative methods, relies less on the use of heavy machinery, making our process more sustainable as a result.
