The non-invasive Building Survey will follow a disciplined iterative methodology and structural appraisal, including advice on loading and foundations to determine the structural serviceability and adequacy of property. Survey will advise of all possible and probable defects and their causes some of which are contained in the menu below:
Pre-1980 poorly designed timber buildings resulted in condensation occurring within the timber frame, leading to the risk of wood rot, and without adequate fire-stopping in the cavities, so that in the event of a fire the flames would have been able to spread unchecked. A TV documentary exposed these problems in 1983 and the timber frame market fell off a cliff. Building regulations of course have subsequently come to the rescue and timber framed building has resurged especially as a sustainable method of construction
