HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Hebden Bridge and which is the cheapest?

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a converted stable. What impact will the property's unusual construction have on upkeep?

Many buyers have considered buying property with real personality. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can create issues for homeowners, and Hebden Bridge homes built with traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional building materials may be required. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. If you plan to make alterations to a period house, discuss options with the chartered surveyor for more detail.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor examine on a stucco Victorian home in Hebden Bridge.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Usually it is applied to underlying brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly appealing and is common on some Victorian and Regency homes. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very similar to plaster or mortar. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a plastic under mesh to stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Hebden Bridge sometimes reveal any number of problems for instance when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Fixing problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the current owner has made us aware that it has been partially constructed with Beer stone. Which potential issues should we consider?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including cracks. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Maintenance tips include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.
