External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick walls on this Tudor house might need repairs. What are the possible consequences? Does brick decay faster in Capel St Mary weather?

Brick properties in Capel St Mary will experience a number of issues, such as spalling. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey along with recommendations. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. English Brickwork should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 07779 959801 or 3 Hartland Cl, Stockport, SK2 5BB.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface).

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a property in Capel St Mary and spotted cracks down the gable wall. What are the risks, and what subsidence-related matters will the Property Surveyor consider?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence.

Cracks to a hallway are an obvious sign of subsidence, but they may entirely benign. Signs of potential subsidence include rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Capel St Mary property built in the early 80s, but it has clay foundations. Can my Home Buyers Survey investigate this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house in Capel St Mary can have unwanted consequences. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Capel St Mary surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Parcels of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
