Full Timber Inspection of the Property

A full timber inspection is normally carried out along with a damp inspection and for a normal three bedroom sized property will take approximately 1-1.5 hours. There is a charge for this type of inspection. All visible and accessible timbers in the property will be inspected for signs of decay (wet or dry rot) or active wood borer infestation and a report will be prepared with findings, recommendations and quotations for any treatments that are required.

Damp Proof course work involves removal of plaster from damp affected walls by mechanical breaker and drilling of the walls to inject the DPC solution. This is a dusty and noisy operation and therefore please be advised that it would be advisable to vacate the areas where treatment is being carried out during the course of the works.

This inspection will normally take approximately one hour for a normal three bedroom sized property. There is a charge for this inspection.

The surveyor will locate the wall ties by means of a metal detector, drill a small hole within the mortar bed next to the wall tie and insert an endoscope (camera) to inspect the condition of the wall tie and the condition of the cavity. From this inspection it will be possible to see if the wall tie is corroded or has snapped within the cavity. Once the endoscope is withdrawn, the drill hole is filled. Normally 2-3 holes are drilled to each elevation of the property.
