1 - Instructions

Written instructions have been received from Mr Glenn Taylor, subsequently accepted, to undertake a survey of the above property in respect of to clear the gutters and produce a report with costings to rectify the issues to the development and get it watertight and a costing for the internal repairs from leak damage.

From attending site the gutters overall worked as they should in most parts and where only 25% full with leaf litter still to drop so was worth waiting till major works commencing to save being charged twice. We relocated some slates while on site but again was pointless with all the other inaccessible one still to be done and have been charged for the ones completed.

No flat roofing repairs could be done at the time of the survey because this is major works




2 - Limitations of the inspection

  • We would refer you to our conditions of engagement concerning these types of survey and the requirement that they are read in conjunction with this report.
  • The inspection was visual without taking off any roofing material finishes. We have not been able to inspect outside high-level areas in any detail (due to the height and wet condition).
  • We have not been able to inspect any part of the subject areas, which is covered, unexposed and inaccessible. We are, therefore, unable to report that such parts are free from other defects.
