Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about vermin on the street. How do we investigate further?

Scare stories about building pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as wasps as minor annoyances. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. An affected building may not always be easy to identify,

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century farmhouse in Bollington. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Many purchasers have considered buying a unique or characterful property. Use of traditional methods, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Bollington homes showcasing traditional methods can be expensive to maintain.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the estate agent has told us that it has been built with Beer stone. Which major problems should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Defects such as efflorescence affect many stone-walled properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.
