- A defect report provides detailed diagnostic analysis and recommendations to resolve a building problem.
- For specific issues such as cracking and movement, dampness and condensation, leaks, roof failures, timber decay and rot or woodworm.
Buildings are complex and problems sometime arise that are not easily explained. Curchod & Co's Chartered Building Surveyors advise owners, occupiers and prospective purchasers, as to the causes of specific building issues, and how they may be overcome. We will visit your building, to investigate, diagnose and understand the full extent of the problem. In some instances we will co-ordinate our services with those of contractors who are exposing parts of a building, or specialists responsible for specific testing. Often these reports can assist owners in making claims against others, perhaps a building insurer.
We aim to provide advice on the severity of any issue and it's consequences. Our report will discuss the options for any repair, with recommendation for the next steps to a resolution.
Building problems can be troublesome. Frequently we can provide reassurance. We will talk you through our findings and can assist with any works recommended.
