Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the seller has made us aware that it has been constructed with Clipsham stone. Are there any major issues that we should be aware of?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Problems which impact stone-built Redhill property can vary greatly, with issues like deteriorating bedding being quote common. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify.

Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Albion Stone plc, 1St Floor, 27-33 Brighton Road, Redhill, Surrey, RH1 6PP, which quarries Limestone, for details. Call 01737 771772 for more information.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house, such as via air bricks. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the property owner or occupier, but this information may not be accurate.
