When investing considerable sums in property with basement elements, it is strongly recommended that trained and competent professionals complete a thorough appraisal of the existing structural waterproofing system.
Basements can provide extremely valuable accommodation; however, should waterproofing fail, the consequential loss, and the cost of rectifying the situation, can be enormous.
We can assess the existing basement’s performance and review the available documentation to ensure that guarantees are properly transferred and meaningful. We also work with reputable basement pump maintenance providers to ensure thorough checks are completed and that vital systems are properly maintained.
Please note: our pre-purchase surveys are typically only requested on properties valued in excess of £5m.
When property purchases go wrong, we may be well placed to provide an independent expert opinion on the causes and required remedies. We may also be appropriate in delivering Expert Determination for a cost effective and rapid resolution of disputes.
Trained and assessed by the Academy of Experts, our Technical Director, Ben Hickman, is an experienced and credible authority in determining various waterproofing issues.
