HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Denton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Denton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Denton property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency home in Denton.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The finish is very attractive and is often found on Georgian buildings for example. Specialists say that it is very like plaster or mortar in its constituency. Stucco is often prone to defect and Denton Home Buyers Suveys frequently report potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when it is faced with driving rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Fixing problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Denton. What advice would the Denton house surveyor give in their report?

Denton houses with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer difficulties with the roof. From parapet walls to decking, every part of the roof will be taken into account, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Denton, but it is a health and safety necessity. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist in Denton a quote for any suggested work. Speak to Whites Roofing Services of 162 Northumberland Rd, Stockport, SK5 8PB on 07527 979936 for an estimate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Denton. What directions can you offer?

Brick converted property experience numerous defects, such as efflorescence. A serious concern is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Bainbridge G Ltd, 12 Anthony Grove, Gosport, PO12 4AS on 023 9258 5314 for a quote for repair work.

For home purchasers in Denton seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
