PBSC : Surveying since 2003

Roofing Defects

Water Ingress

Woodworm (woodboring beetles)

Settlement and Cracking

Timber decay

Parapet Walls

Wet Rot or Dry Rot

Subsidence or Heave

First and foremost we have no vested interest in the outcome of diagnosing the defect that we are appraising, so you can be assured that the report you get from us will be our honest professional opinion as to the true cause.


One of the biggest fears that our Clients tell us they have is that all too often tradesperson simply 'sell' the wrong solution because it means more work for them.

As each building is different and different aspects concern homeowners to differing degrees, then we are happy to talk through any concerns about any element of the Building.  We are always happy to have a discussion about the concerns first, if it is not something that we can deal with then we can hopefully direct you for sound advice.

With the assurance of the report, it is then easier for the homeowner to get the defect rectified through the appropriate trade, or often, in the case of subsidence or heave, then an insurance claim.

If further assistance is needed from PBSC then we can offer this with intrusive investigation (opening up etc), specifications for remedial repair works or monitoring of cracking.
