Structural report on bulging walls

cloud

Older buildings were not always designed and built to the same rigorous standards as today but also the effects of time can lead to deterioration of elements of the structure of your home or property.

 A common example of this is bulging walls.

Bulges in walls most often occur on the upper storeys of properties but can also be found at lower levels.  In many cases, a bulging wall is not currently a cause for structural concern.  However, as a wall leans, there is a certain point beyond which it is no longer stable such that it will tend to pull itself over to lean more.  Whilst this is often a gradual process, it is one that needs addressing.  These symptoms may be causing you concern on the safety of integrity of your property, and possibly cause worry of the safety of your and family and you are seeking informed advice.

This is where Structures-Made-Easy can help.  As structural engineers with a wealth of experience of buildings from Tudor to modern day, we are the expert specialists who can give reliable guidance on the structural issues.  Other professionals in the construction industry such as surveyors, builders or architects may give initial guidance or recognition of structural matters but reliable specialist advice can only come from a structural engineer.

We will visit the property to gather evidence on the building and investigate the highlighted issue, including taking measurements.   We will then produce a detailed written report describing the issue, how severe any problems may be and giving options for how the problems could be repaired and the root cause addressed.  We can also give a very crude guideline on the cost of those repairs.  Our report will give guidance on the urgency of remedial works or whether rebuilding is required or most-cost-effective.  

Often a structural problem may be localised in the property and you may wish Structures-Made-Easy only need to report only on that issue.  Alternatively, we can investigate the structure of the entire property.
