Types of Survey
Which survey is right for you?
If you already know, please click the link to the right -
We specialise in surveying older, solid-walled or historic or listed buildings, but are equally experienced in surveying all types of buildings, where it is more common for there to be complex failures of several elements rather than just one. This is usually the result of inconsistent maintenance or the wrong materials being used or poor quality repairs being made in the past. The different types of survey are explained in greater detail by clicking one of the links opposite:
After completing the exhaustive inspection, either a building survey or a defect (timber and damp) survey of your home, we will provide you with a detailed report written in laymen's terms advising on any defects that need to be addressed and the best course of action to take.
Although we are based in Swansea, we operate in many other areas in the UK including Cardiff and Bristol and towards London and also have an operating base in Perthshire where we can survey throughout Scotland and 'the north'.
We have surveyed for a range of clients from tenants, landlords, owners of flats and terraced houses to castles. So, if you have questions about your home, want to chat about one you are buying or want to arrange a survey, please contact us today by calling 07944611844 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking for answers?
Whether you are looking for answers via a
detailed specific defect or dampness survey of your home or an extremely comprehensive building survey, this is the only place to get the correct advice for the long-term benefit of your home.
Dampness surveys start from as little as £395 plus return mileage with defect surveys from £495, both depending on the size of the property so the amount of time it will take to examine and compile a report of the issues. Building surveys are complicated and very detailed inspections so attract a higher fee starting around £695.
Sometimes access can be difficult or issues numerous and complex so, if a survey runs on, the fee remains fixed as initially agreed.
The report is emailed when it is completed and the balance of the fee only payable when the hard copy of the report is received.
Heritage and Design Ltd offers specialist and detailed building surveys for home-owners, specifically for old or historic or listed buildings. The survey can take up to a full day to carry out, with the survey fee similar to that of a quick 'walk-in' survey provided by other surveying firms.
Great importance is placed on the use of plain English and, where technical or generally unfamiliar terms are used, an explanation is included. It's amusing to read some so-called technical reports from damp companies, supposedly aimed at the lay-person, which contain so many technical terms and Latin names - absolutely no use to anyone.
A building survey report full of technical jargon doesn't help you, the owner, understand what's going on in your building. My reports are, like me, simple, direct and easily understood.
Being able to get across a technical point to a person with no technical knowledge is a bit of a skill. I enjoy what I do but it would be pretty pointless if no-one could understand what I was on about.
