Building Surveys are the top level inspections (Level 3) that were previously known as Structural Surveys. They are suitable for any type of property and they cover everything that it is possible to inspect, from the chimneys down to the drains, inside and out. They also include the grounds, the services, possible damp problems and potential health and safety risks.
The reports are written in plain English (not jargon) and include several photographs in each section to show exactly what the defects are. Additional information sheets are included at the back of the report which are tailored to the requirements of each individual property and cover such topics as Wood Burning Stoves, Damp Proofing of Basements, Guttering etc etc.
Close up aerial photographs are taken of the chimneys, roofs, gutters and any other inaccessible areas using a pole camera to ensure the survey is as thorough as possible. Examples of the aerial photographs can be seen using the links provided below
