External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for London brick guidelines for upkeep - can a Barrow Upon Soar property surveyor assist? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-walled Barrow Upon Soar residences can be affected by distinct issues. This could be anything from thermal movement to lack of a damp proof course. A defect requiring immediate attention is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Yates T A should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01253 823340 or 124 Hillylaid Rd, Thornton-Cleveleys, FY5 4ED.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like running, or stretcher, bond, to the rare, such basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
