Cannock Chartered Surveyors RICS Homebuyers Survey and Report on a 1930 semi detached house

 

The elevations on this typical 1930's house have been rendered to save money by avoiding the need to purchase and carefully lay expensive facing bricks. The render had been given sharp edges at the openings using metal beads. Unfortunately these were corroding leaving unsightly stains. The only remedy is to chop them out and re render which requires skill to blend the new into the old. The house then has to be repainted unless matching paint is available. The roof surface had formed a dish shape due to a slightly substandard structure in which a major component was undersized and had sagged slightly. An outbuilding had a fractured concrete roof. Apart from letting water into the outbuildings this is potentially problematic as the reinforcing may start to corrode forcing concrete of the roof until it is eventually destroyed. The property had the original quarry tile floor in the kitchen. This was uneven due to the sand or ash on which it had been laid compacting unevenly. The tiles and particularly the joints are likely to be damp as there is no damp proof membrane under. Such floors need to be kept uncovered and well ventilated. Roots had also invaded a drain and were catching water material. Fortunately this was at an early stage and the chamber had not filled.
