We all know at least a couple of local builders, and aside from extensions and the odd new build, the local construction firm busies itself by inspecting and repairing homes. Smart homeowners know that with an annual building inspection, any minor issues can be capped before it gets costly to repair, and with a qualified construction company in Clitheroe checking your property on a yearly basis, you can forget big repair bills.
Rather than waiting for damp to arrive, regular inspections nip it in the bud, and with minor remedial work, the issue is resolved. A typical building inspection would include the following:
- Thorough roof inspection
- Checking the exterior walls for erosion and damage
- A comprehensive damp check
- Interior inspection, including loft and basement, if there is one.
If you have never had your property inspected, now is the perfect time, just before spring arrives, and with a detailed report and the recommendations of the builder, you can make an informed decision on the best way forward.
Repairs Will Be Necessary
In a perfect world, house maintenance would be a rarity, yet in the real world, every structure needs repairing at times. Things wear out, materials erode, and with constant use, many of the home’s features might need some renovations.
Your home is likely to be the biggest single investment you’ll ever make, therefore it makes sense to look after the asset, which also happens to be where you live.
