Stone block wall damage

Can property in Runcorn partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for purchasers? What should we look in to?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including spalling brick. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include spalling brick.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregularly built walls as stones are less likely to come loose or the mortar to decay. 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, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
