Building Defect Analysis/Building Pathology
It’s obviously essential that buildings are regularly maintained to keep their value and ensure that they perform correctly. Dealing promptly with obvious defects as they arise can often be key to preventing both short or long term damage occurring to the building fabric. For example, leaking pipes, gutters, damp patches, failing paintwork or condensation problems.
Sometimes there may be no obvious clue as to the cause of a problem and in these circumstances a more detailed and methodical inspection and analysis of the problem will be needed.
In either instance I can advise on the cause and the appropriate remedial works to the building fabric. Again if you just want to have an initial chat that’s fine.
