Cracks, leaks, damp/mould and humidity, are all common issues affecting buildings – but how are they caused and how can they be rectified? Carter Stephenson Quinn’s chartered building surveyors and chartered engineers have extensive building pathology expertise to advise clients on the defects that affect their building.

Our surveyors adopt a methodical approach, applying practical experience to our analysis of building defects. Our investigations can be concentrated in a specific area or could be of the entire property, depending on the nature of defect(s) in question. Our investigations are aided using diagnostic tools such as infrared cameras, hygrometers and moisture meters, but ultimately it is our specialist ‘building pathologists’ that provide clients with the correct interpretation of data and with a cost-effective solution to address the root cause.

Our reports are sufficiently detailed for a contractor to rely upon for the execution of remedial works, while also utilising the minimum amount of technical jargon to make them easy for clients to read. Our reports include the remedial actions necessary to address the issue, and our chartered quantity surveyors will advise on budgets.
