Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a house in Shepton Mallet - How do we investigate further?

Shepton Mallet properties are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This problem should be taken seriously. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for vermin may include chemical treatment and destruction of tainted materials. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s home in Shepton Mallet with stone walls. Are there any major factors that we should be aware of?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Grey Catcastle Sandstone to Rockingstone Sandstone, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Maintenance tips include monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

To find a specific quarried stone, contact a Shepton Mallet expert - Shepton Classic Stone, 10 Commercial Rd, Shepton Mallet, BA4 5BU could help.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Shepton Mallet. Is there any brick chimney maintenance advice we should be aware of?? Does render make a difference?

Brick conversions in Shepton Mallet will suffer from distinct issues, ranging from thermal movement to frost damaged pointing. The house surveyor will cover these in his report, with feedback. One particularly serious issue is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. C & D Bricklaying Specialists Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01452 854460 or 26 Cranham La, Churchdown, Gloucester, GL3 2NN.

Brick-constructed property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. As an example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
