Barron Surveying Services Ltd has urged clients keen to know what repairs maybe required on their property to take advantage of a detailed property inspection and condition report as the Government begins the process of relaxing the Coronavirus restrictions.

Chartered Building Surveyor James Barron said as the better weather returns, it presents the ideal opportunity to assess what external issues may need addressing.

As the country begins to move slowly out of lockdown and with the construction industry one of the first sectors to get up and running, James pointed out that this could be a good time to get a chartered building surveyor to check your home’s external condition.

He also assured both existing clients and potential customers that Barron Surveying Services would be following all the safety guidelines relating to the COVID 19 disease to the letter in delivering property inspections and other services. 

 “It is important to stress though that while some issues will be in plain sight and obvious, even to the untrained eye, there may be other problems that it will take a professional to spot,” said James.

 “That is where our condition reports can make such a difference, particularly in identifying potential issues before they become a real problem, which can save clients a lot of money.

 “I also want to make it clear that we are firmly committed to the principles of our very own ‘Adapt and Protect’ message in relation to the current health crisis, as well as the latest Government guidelines, and while we recognise the importance of getting our economy moving again, the health and safety of everyone we work with and for, must be – and will be – our main priority.”

Property inspections are an important element of the Plymouth-based company services, which are mainly aimed at building management clients who need to schedule vital repair work.

 But James also stresses that condition reports are equally useful for domestic homeowners who are looking for a complete picture of what repairs maybe needed now – on in the near future.

 Areas that James says are important to check include:

  • Guttering
  • Soffits and fascia
  • Roof slates
  • Windows and doors
  • Chimney cracks
  • Damage to render
  • Exterior painting requirements.

 As a Chartered Building Surveyor all James’ services are fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and he has more than three decades of industry experience to give clients total peace of mind.
