Defect Analysis

Investigating potential defects or suspected problems with your property.

// Services

Worried about an issue or defect impacting your property in Somerset? 

A defect survey concentrates on a specific defect or suspected problem relating to a property or building, both commercial and residential.

Our chartered surveyors record the condition at the time of inspection and aim to provide reasons and solutions for the defect. We can also help with repairs or a planned maintenance programme following a defect survey. We work with a selection of trust suppliers that we’d be happy to recommend or liaise with on your behalf.

What are potential defects or areas of concern suitable for defect analysis surveys?

A defect survey becomes necessary if you are worried about a potential problem or have already identified a defect and wish to uncover the cause.

These could be issues related to structural damage or building movement related to ceilings, chimney stacks, guttering, roofs, floors or extensions.

We can also investigate defects causing cracking, dampness, mould, rot or woodworms in your property. These can be common problems in old or listed buildings.

What are the benefits of defect analysis from a chartered surveyor?

Specific defect reports are often more cost-effective and appropriate than a comprehensive building survey or homebuyers report.

By investigating the specific defect and its cause, we can offer repair advice that will solve the problem at its source. Thereby reducing repeated maintenance costs and preventing further damage to your property.

If in doubt, get the issue checked out by our team of chartered surveyors. The cost of a defect survey is far less than repairing structural or material damage later on.
