About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Winton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Winton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Winton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Winton property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a residential property and the seller has suggested that it has been built with Doulting stone. Are there specific factors to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may be need of upkeep. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Winton should be able to supply local stone.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will a Winton Surveyor consider on a stucco home in Winton that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is highly beautiful and is/was found on Victorian and Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Winton Home Buyers Suveys sometimes discover defects e.g. when movement of the wall can lead to cracks. Other issues may result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Remedying Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this home in Winton is badly worn - what should we do? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick residential property be affected by distinct issues, from crypto-florescence to sulphate expansion. Your surveyor in Winton can investigate these as part of their report along with recommendations. A serious concern is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Contact Pullen Brickwork Ltd for a repairs estimate at 01454 319822 or Frome Farm/Badminton Rd, Old Sodbury, Bristol, BS37 6LU.

Buyers in Winton should consider that a number of popular courses and methods have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. 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.
