Defect Diagnosis

Defect diagnosis involves the analysis of a buildings construction to understand causes of failure or reduction in performance to enable formulation of appropriate repair measures.
As Building Surveyors, the understanding of building defects is at the core of our skill base.

Typical defects requiring diagnosis would relate to:

  • Structural movement
  • Water ingress
  • Appearance of dampness

Dependent upon the visual evidence recorded, further investigation may be required involving opening up of building elements, laboratory analysis or a period of monitoring.

Following diagnosis, we can prepare detailed specifications of repair and coordinate the repair works as part of a Project Management role.
