External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Staffordshire and are looking for homes with Diagonal bond walls. What advice would a Staffordshire surveyor give?

Brick-constructed homes do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also experience considerable issues, such as signs of movement. The surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with feedback. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Contact several local builders for quotes, including A & J Construction of 50 Jenks Rd, Wombourne, Wolverhampton, WV5 0BL on 07947 644972.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
