Stone block wall damage

Can Hopton Wood stone-built structures be hard to upkeep. What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

From Grey Dunhouse Sandstone to Naylor Hill Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Repair advice often includes clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

I've put in an offer in Sandy. What directions can a property surveyor in Sandy offer? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. Do we need a house surveyor?

Homes in Sandy are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides and removal of infected furniture. If you believe moths, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
