If you have a particular defect or affected area that you are concerned about, whether it is a crack or something else, our engineering and surveying team can help you with this. Often, another surveyor will recommend further investigation (particularly if their firm do not have engineers as part of the team), or it may be an issue relating to roof and chimney defects or bowing walls, for example, that you have noticed on your property.

We will carry out a site visit and provide a report stating our diagnosis and recommendations for remedial works as appropriate. Our localised survey will focus on the relevant area and our report will provide a diagnosis of the building defect and provide appropriate recommendations for remedial works.

If the recommendations require design work to be undertaken to remediate the problem, we can offer a full service, including design and calculations for remedial works on supporting structures.

Examples of specific defects that we can assist with:

  • Subsidence investigation – Cracking or bowing of walls or beams; suspected instability or movement of walls or floors (subsidence)
  • Issues with specific aspects of the building or alterations, such as wall removals and loft conversions
  • Roofing defects
  • Chimney defects, or structural assessment prior to chimney breast removal
  • Timber rot or infestation assessment
  • Steel beam corrosion assessment
  • Issues with brickwork quality
  • Problems with supporting structures such as

Our surveys can either be a full inspection of the property or a detailed inspection of a particular area of concern. A comprehensive technical report will be written after the inspection, detailing all of the defects that were found and listing all the recommended repairs that are required on the different elements of the building.
