Defect Diagnosis

The appearance of damp patches or cracks in walls can be disconcerting to the property owner.

It is important to get professional advice on such defects since quite innocuous defects can be indicative of more serious problems. Condensation is often mistaken for rising or lateral penetrating damp, and homeowners can spend thousands of pounds on unnecessary damp treatment works. Cracks in buildings are not always indicative of subsidence. In many period homes, particularly those built in the Victorian era, certain design flaws can lead to cracking which merely needs periodic repair. Elevation Surveyors are able to carry out in-depth appraisals of building defects and offer advice on the most cost-effective and appropriate repair.
