What Does A Building Assessment Involve?

Our building assessments are based on proven, innovative low-impact investigation techniques that can accurately confirm a building’s structural condition and its weathertightness performance.

Is a Building Assessment Invasive?

When you work with us, the answer is generally no. In most cases we can assess a building’s condition without removing any part of its exterior cladding.

Our low level invasive and visual assessment will identify issues (if any) that need to be remediated. Our goal is to establish the nature and extent of remedial work required to make your building weathertight and durable.

Structural framing assessment

A key part of the major property upgrading of our house was for Central Building Surveyors to conduct a Drill Analysis of the exterior wall framing. The objective was to identify any unforeseen structural damage to our house caused by water and/or outdated building materials or methods. 

The Drill analysis results identified specific areas for repair, some previously unnoticed. To us, the Drill Analysis process was a critical first step; it helped Central Building Surveyors to determine the condition of our structural framing and develop the work needed to remediate our house. As a result, we now know the upgrade, repairs and changes will ensure the long term structural integrity of our property and its compliance with building codes as well as give us peace of mind.
