Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with Forest of Dean stone walls. Which major defects should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Defects affecting stone-built houses in Newton Ferrers can vary, deteriorating bedding being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. 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, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings. Purchasers renovating houses in Newton Ferrers should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in Newton Ferrers, you can contact local suppliers.
