Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that the had been a problem with rotten beams. What aspects of the attic will be checked during the survey?

Homes in the area that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious damage to the roof. From eaves to roof battens, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable contractor in Bidford On Avon.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls cause problems? Are there specific defects to consider?

Ranging from Red St.Bees Sandstone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like use of traditional methods to maintain older walls. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Bidford On Avon. Is there a flood risk, and will the building survey look for flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
