Some building defects can often lead to much ‘head scratching’ with manifestations, such as dampness or a crack in a wall, not necessarily giving a clue as to the cause. Establishing the cause and designing or specifying a remedy can sometimes be quite involved, often necessitating gaining a full understanding of the construction of a building or part of it. MDW has the skills, knowledge and experience required to undertake defect diagnosis in nearly all building types.
Establishing types of construction and building details
Unfortunately, the building records of many local properties do not exist. However, before undertaking alterations or improvements in some building types it is essential to know how the building has been constructed. Wherever possible, MDW will endeavour to do this through non-intrusive and non-destructive means and each step in the process will be discussed in detail.
