From ridge flashing to slates, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. Your surveyors in Thornton Cleveleys may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall)

To fully consider the property's value the valuer will take into account local Thornton Cleveleys market factors and other things about the property e.g. size Your Thornton Cleveleys surveyor will also consider construction type and use key assumptions such as there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.
