External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Dinas Powys, what recommendations will a Dinas Powys property surveyor make for a house with Dutch bond brick? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed residential property feature several advantages. However, they can also indicate diverse problems, including inadequate damp-proofing and thermal movement. Such defects will be discussed in the report and suggest potential remedies. An issue of particular concern is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. For more information, contact a local builder, Conner T Brickwork Ltd of 30 Burwell Rd, London, E10 7QG on 07961 513134.

For example, Scottish bond or stretcher bond may be used in the construction of residential property in Dinas Powys. Consider renegotiating the price of the Dinas Powys property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Damaged Render

What will a Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency house in Dinas Powys that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a form of render. Usually it is layered over brick hardens to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very beautiful and is was often applied to Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Dinas Powys Building Surveys frequently show issues for example, horizontal hairline cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems could be when moisture under flashings that results in detachment. Re-coating problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.
