External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for London brick upkeep guidance - can a Ross On Wye surveyor assist? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick property in Ross On Wye will suffer from a range of defects, ranging from spalling to frost damaged pointing. Your surveyor will cover these in his report, with repair advice also supplied. One serious matter 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. A C Brickwork & Builders at 22 Gladwell Rd, Bromley, BR1 4DA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01689 619081.

For instance, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when purchasing a building constructed in 1790 in Ross On Wye? Will the house's age be a concern?

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Ross On Wye. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we pay attention to during the survey?

Property in and around Ross On Wye with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like missing tiles. From eaves to wind braces, the whole roof will be considered. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Ross On Wye, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the property surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
