Loss Adjusters acting for Insurers instructed us to investigate & report upon damage to the rear facade (windows were jammed) and floors were sloping excessively.
In addition the roof covering was found to have serious defects that required further investigations in order to establish the extent and cause of damage.
KMASS carried out a detailed appraisal of the issues and then prepared a specification for remedial works. We were then appointed as Contract Administrator seeing the repair works through to completion.
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.

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.
Not long after purchase of these luxury properties several of the owners experienced problems with the suspended floors deflecting to such an extent that some of the doors on the lower floor would not open.
