HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Saundersfoot and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Saundersfoot property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Saundersfoot property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Saundersfoot Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian home in Saundersfoot that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is a kind of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco render is very attractive and was often found on Victorian homes. Stucco is very similar to mortar (sand and cement). It may contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Saundersfoot Homebuyer Reports sometimes detail defects such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated prone to damage from frost

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Re-applying Stucco problems may be expensive as craftsmen are getting rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Saundersfoot. Is there any Flemish bond repair advice we should be aware of?? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed houses in Saundersfoot demonstrate several benefits in comparison to other forms of building, but they can also show signs of both minor and serious issues, ranging from spalling to efflorescence. One problem often found is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Daybell S should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 41 Balderton La, Coddington, Newark, NG24 2QD or 01636 702197.

One example is Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Stone block wall damage

Can Forest of Dean stone-built properties be hard to maintain. What related issues must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Naylor Hill Sandstone to Stoke Hall Sandstone, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Saundersfoot are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include replacing missing or badly worn stones. 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.
