Defect Analysis

Our services in respect of this area of our business range from identification of a building defect, through to its remedy which will often require the preparation of schedules of repairs and overseeing the implementation of the works to completion.

A core service we offer is the identification of various defects ranging from damp / water ingress, condensation, leaking roofs, timber decay and rot, insect infestation, crack diagnosis, structural movement, deleterious materials, concrete / masonry defects to name but a few.

We will undertake all investigation and exploratory work and will provide advice on options for repairs and costs. Where deemed necessary we arrange for other consultants to provide specialist advice, for example structural engineers or mechanical and electrical engineers to assist in our investigations. We also select suitable and approved contractors to co-ordinate the works to completion.

When undertaking the diagnosis of a defect we will take into the account the surrounding environment, construction type of the building, workmanship and materialled used. We are also well equipped in undertaking repairs to listed buildings and those within conservation areas

We have a wide range of equipment to utilise where necessary from damp meters to assess the level of water content within a substrate to borescopes to look into hard to access areas.

The photos show dry rot at a property which we undertook the specifying of the remedial works, this included works required to prevent the issue reoccurring.
