Building Defect Investigation

Defects in Buildings

Coppard Giles are frequently instructed to assist our clients with a specific defect or problem on a property they already own / occupy, or are considering acquiring. This will usually involve diagnosing the cause of the defect and giving advice on suitable works or measures to rectify it. Such instances commonly include:

  • Dampness problems
  • Cracking.
  • Roofing problems

Accurate Diagnosis

Our highly competent building surveyors are very successful in diagnosing such problems, as a result of the unique experience gained over the years from undertaking hundreds of surveys and projects on numerous types of properties.

Cost Savings

The early and accurate diagnosis of a building defect, and good advice on appropriate remedial measures, can save money in the long run by avoiding the cost of inappropriate remedial works and minimising ongoing disruption.
