How do I know if i need structural work?

The only way to really know what is wrong with your property, when its not obvious, is to enlist the advice of a skilled expert in structural damage to assess the damage. There are however, a few warning signs to watch out for before getting an expert in.

The tell-tale signs of structural repairs are needed include;

  • Cracked masonry
  • Damp proofing issues
  • Slumping in the masonry
  • Ground movement

Why are structural problems only occurring now?

Over time, structural damage is not uncommon in older properties. Even newer properties can develop problems in the brickwork and stonework due to circumstance outwith the buildings control.

Put simply, when movement occurs around a property a fixed building is typically not built to bend without fracturing. This type of structural damage can occur in the home for a number of reasons including;
 

  • defected drains in the area
  • tree roots close to the property
  • rise or fall in the level of the water table
  • Ground movement/settling

An experienced property surveyor will be able to advise the underlying cause of any cracks and recommend the best course of treatment.

Why it is important to carry out structural repairs?

Ignoring the problem will not fix anything. Often we find that the longer the problem is ignored the larger the risk and cost to you and your property. However, it is not all bad news. As our techniques and methods have developed, structural repairs no longer have to be a massive expense they were in the past. As part of our service, we offer bespoke tailored solutions to all our clients.
