Examples of problems with roof structures
We use lots of sketches and photos in our building surveys
We can provide help and advice with regard to building surveys, structural surveys, independent valuations, property surveys, structural reports, engineers reports, home buyers reports or any other property matters . We can carry out specific defect reports relating to roof problems and advise on practical solutions. In the past we have carried out survey reports on problems with the roof structure to problems with the roof covering.
As you can see from our articles on surveying we use lots of sketches and photos which we also use in our property reports as the feedback we have from our clients is that the sketches and photos help them understand the reports better and ultimately solve the problems and carry out the appropriate negotiations. We, of course, like to meet you at the property during the survey and we are more than happy to talk to you about the reports. Please free phone 0800 298 5424 for a friendly chat with one of our surveyors.
A problem with the roof can often indicate problems with the whole building
1. Replacement of slate or tile roof with a heavier concrete tile without adding strength to the roof structure

2. Rafter feet rotting
3. Roofs affected by wet rot, dry rot or woodworm
4. Wind driven rain
Some of these problems can happen of course on both a gable roof or a hipped roof.
Other articles that may be of interest
The following articles give further information related to roofs, but don't forget that we have written articles on many different areas of property:
Things to look out for which may be signs that the roof has problems
If you look at the corner of this hipped roof you can see that there is movement in the hipped roof.
Doors can indicate problems
Can you spot the problems with these roofs?
The photo looking into the corner of a roof gave the first indicator that there were problems with movement and that there had been long term problems. If you look at the horizontal timber that goes across the corner of the walls this is the tie that is trying to stop the movement in the property.
Examples of Problems that we see in roofs
Dampness to valley gutters
