Building Defects Diagnosis
Building Defects Diagnosis is one of the Building Surveyor’s core specialisms.
We understand buildings. How they can go wrong and what building repair is required. Buildings are becoming increasing technical, adopting innovative and unique construction techniques which are constantly evolving, therefore requiring better technical understanding.
Few buildings are free of defects in one form or another. The scientific and technical analysis of building defects is necessary to understand the cause of the component failure or breakdown, as well as the durability, strength and condition of the building elements.
We are able to inspect building defects, advice on any specific scientific testing which may be required for final diagnosis, then recommend the right building repair for your circumstances taking account of costs, likely success, access and egress, residual risks and your plans for the property. We can also provide technical due diligence in relation to an assessment of failure, or non-compliance with specification, as part of a dispute resolution or litigation situation.
Our experience spans from traditional construction techniques to the most cutting edge. Proactively dealing with a defect is essential to prevent long-term deterioration and significant consequential costs.
From our base in Shropshire we cover a broad geographic area which includes Mid Wales, the East Midlands and West Midlands and all the town and cities including Welshpool, Shrewsbury, Chester, Telford, Wolverhampton, Birmingham and Coventry – though we have taken on larger commissions from further afield. If you are in any doubt just ask and we would be delighted to assist.
