Defective Roof & Inadequate Drainage System to Listed Farmhouse in the Cotswolds

in Structural Defects

The client had recently purchased this farmhouse building to discover that a section of the original timber roof carcass had collapsed. In addition the ground floor was subject to water ingress caused by flash flooding.
We investigated the problems and identified the causes and prepared a specification for repairs. The works were Tendered and we acted as Contract Administrator.
Upon completion of the works a large percentage of the repair costs were recovered from the company that carried out the pre-purchase survey for the client.
