25 Oct Building Surveyors busy in Luton
This beautiful 1980s, large detached property near Luton was a fantastic property to visit for a full building survey. Our Level 3 inspection incorporated all elements of the property, inside and out, including a thorough examination of the roof and loft space.
This apartment in Leighton Buzzard was quite a contrast. Consisting of a mezzanine apartment, it was a much smaller property but had some remarkable period features. The flat took up the ground floor of what was once an 18th-century coach house, which had been converted in 2007 into separate apartments.
These three homes were built in the early 20th century. The surveys of the detached and semi-detached properties were straightforward, with a traditional construction. Our structural survey of the Luton bungalow, however, was more complex, because a substantial flat-roofed rear and side extension had been added since it was first built, with the roof later being replaced with a pitched roof covering the entire property.
Our final Luton survey highlights are all modern properties. The first was built in the 1980s, with pitched roofs and elevations in fair faced cavity brick. The next was a traditional-style detached house, with an extension to the rear and a converted garage. Finally, our Luton team surveyed a 1980s timber-framed property with external brickwork cladding. In this image, you can see overgrown vegetation – we recommended asking the council to cut this back or remove it, otherwise, it could cause damage to the property by extracting large amounts of moisture from the subsoil.
