Ever had those moments where you’re itching to understand the magic behind a comprehensive property assessment? Or wondered about the layers that make up your beloved home? You’re in luck! With Flettons Surveyors by your side, we’ll uncover exactly what surveyors look for during an in-depth survey and the nuances of structural alterations.
The Backbone: Foundation and Structural Integrity
Our journey begins at the base. At Flettons, we place a significant emphasis on inspecting the main structure, keenly looking for signs of settling, shifts, or cracks. A building’s lifeblood lies in its foundation. If there’s a problem here, it can cascade into bigger challenges.
Up Above: Roofs and Attics
Casting our gaze upwards, the roof and its companion, the attic, are next. Our experts meticulously check shingles, drainage, and potential water ingress. In the attic, our focus narrows to insulation quality and apt ventilation, ensuring your sanctuary remains just that—a sanctuary.
The Shield: Walls and Ceilings
Flettons doesn’t miss a beat. Walls and ceilings? They’re on our radar. Our surveyors are trained to spot cracks, dampness, timber decay, or any unusual markings—potential indicators of hidden woes.
Hidden Foes: Invasive Species and Harmful Materials
Going beyond the visible, Flettons acts as your protector against unseen threats. From invasive species like woodworm to harmful substances like asbestos, we ensure you’re safeguarded.
Vital Systems: Plumbing and Electrics
Our journey deepens into the heart of your home’s functioning—the plumbing and electrical systems. At Flettons, we test taps, scrutinize drainage, and search for leaks. Electrically, our experts verify the condition of wiring, outlets, and ensure safety standards are met.
Windows, Doors, and More
We know the importance of the little details. Drafty windows or aging doors? We’re onto them, ensuring your home remains energy-efficient and comfortable.
Comfort Central: Heating, Cooling, and Ventilation
With Flettons, your comfort is our priority. We thoroughly assess your heating and cooling systems, ensuring efficiency and reliability throughout the seasons.
We check accessible drainage chambers to assess the visible sections of pipework and chamber walls. Defective drains can lead to subsidence so this is something that definitely requires attention.
The Unseen: Basements, Crawl Spaces, and More
We dig deeper, quite literally. Venturing into basements and crawl spaces, our surveyors identify signs of dampness or potential mold, ensuring every corner is covered.
