What will a surveyor check in your property?

A surveyor will examine the general condition of the property and see if there are any major faults in the accessible parts of the building. If there are any major issues, this can decrease the value when selling. Click here.

It can also bring up minor problems that may gradually get worse over the years – it’ll be much more beneficial to sort these out before it’s too late.

Safety first

A surveyor will check the other windows in your house too. They will observe the windows and identify any rust, faulty hinges, rots and fire opening egress. It is also important to call a surveyor and ask them to pop over to your property prior to any new windows being installed. Contact Trusted Surveyors for your building services.

They will have knowledge in certain areas, including security, ventilation, access and much more. They ensure that all building regulations are being followed and that a secure installation will occur.

Simple installation process

If you have any rooflights on your flat roof, these will be checked thoroughly to see if they have been installed and designed efficiently. You can shop for your rooflights from EOS – a market leading skylight supplier in the UK.

All of their products have been hand selected because of their design, performance and low U Values (energy efficiency levels). Their rooflights are designed to have a simple and easy installation process. See: Step-by-step guide.

Secure walls

Another area that will be inspected during the surveyor visit will be the retaining walls. Each wall will be looked over and ensure that they are securely fitted to hold back earth and water in a way that isn’t dangerous. Click here for experts in building retaining walls.

Look out for any bulges or loose areas and get these fixed ASAP so there aren’t any problems down the line. Ensure that the weeping holes are clear.

They will also check walls for any stains that may be present. If stains are found, this could be signs of water leaking within the walls or the roof, which has dripped down. It could also be a sign for any mould that may begin to build up. Contact us if you notice any issues.
