HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Congleton and which one is cheaper?

Brick-built homes feature several advantages, but they will also be affected by a range of defects, such as crypto-florescence. The Congleton surveyor can investigate these as part of their report and suggest potential remedies. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Contact several local builders for quotes, including S F Bricklaying Services of Broad La, Pelsall, Walsall, WS4 1AD on 07814 194608.
