Defect Diagnosis lies at the heart of Building Surveying. However, many Building Surveyors tend to focus on Project Management type work throughout their career and don’t possess the technical skills and experience to properly investigate, diagnose and advise on Building defects and defective workmanship.

At Propvisory, our Chartered Building Surveyors have a detailed knowledge of construction types and the problems that can arise.

Defects typically fall into one of the following categories:

Cracking/Structrual Movement

Timber decay/infestation


Poor workmanship
