Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built property be hard to upkeep. What factors should we be aware of?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Defects such as cracks affect many stone-walled Ulverston property. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Ulverston property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will my Surveyor be looking for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian detached house in Ulverston that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a form of solid render. Typically stucco render is layered over underlying red brick that sets to a very smooth surface. The coating is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. Stucco is often prone to defect and Ulverston Home Buyers Suveys can discover any number of problems for instance trapped water resulting in internal damp problems. Other potential problems might involve sulphate attack from salts absorbed from bricks. Fixing problems can be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.
