We carry out all investigation and exploratory work and provide advice on options for repairs and costs. Where necessary we arrange for other consultants to provide specialist advice, for example structural engineers or mechanical and electrical engineers to aid our investigations. We also select suitable and approved contractors to co-ordinate the works to completion.
When diagnosing a defect we consider the surrounding environment, construction type of the building, workmanship and material used. We are also experienced at undertaking repairs to listed buildings and those within conservation areas.
We use a wide range of equipment 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 where we were instructed to identify and carry out which remedial works required to prevent the issue reoccurring.
