Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the house in Liverpool we plan to buy. What can we do?

Liverpool houses are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor examine on a smooth stucco semi detached home in Liverpool which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact a smooth and flat render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. It is very beautiful and was was often applied to Regency houses. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Liverpool can detail any number of problems e.g. trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp needing repair. Another example of problems associiated with stucco may involve attack from from salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Remedying problems can be dear as renderers are getting more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

Can Doulting stone-built structures be a challenge. Which related issues should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Farmington Stone to Golconda Dolomitic Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Problems which impact stone-built houses can vary greatly, with issues like staining being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to houses, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Maintenance tips include using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

For more details, consider a stonemason or other knowledgeable contractor in the area, such as Fireplace Factory Outlet Ltd, Unit 12 13, Wheatland Business Pk, Wallasey, CH44 7ER.

  • Sash window frame with wet rot

    By Stewart Heasman September 29th, 2012

    Wet rot is usually associated with neglect or poor detailing in buildings, occurring in timbers which are continually wet, or having persistent moisture content in excess of around 20%. This can be caused by leaking roofs, joinery exposed to the elements (as was the case in this property) or...
