Defect Analysis

Defect analysis reports are produced for property stakeholders who have concerns about a single or number of defects to a property.

Examples could be cracks on walls, roof problems, damp penetration, condensation or subsidence. We can inspect a property, identify the seriousness of the defect, and produce an analysis report including photographs on the reasons for the problem and propose the best solutions with repair cost estimates.

We can arrange and manage remedial work too, ensuring the required repairs are done correctly and avoiding costly mistakes.
