Defect Reports

All properties require maintenance over their life cycle to ensure building materials are fit for purpose.  Defects can still develop in areas that may not be regularly seen or inspected.  When a defect occurs, the root cause of the problem must be identified to prevent further damage.

Common defects

  • Damp – rising, penetrating and condensation
  • Rot – wet and dry
  • Flat roof deterioration
  • Roof deterioration
  • Structural stability – subsidence, heave and landslip
  • Plumbing problems
  • Electrical problems
