subsidence
Explanation:
The Collins dictionary explains:

subsidence:
the act or process of subsiding or the condition of having subsided

This is also confirmed by the Polish English Dictionary of Science and Technology

Any existing roof subsidences should be levelled out.

The term I used while translating some building structure documentation.

Hope it helps you out, Sobaga
