Property Renovation in WD6
Posted 20 October 2016
Job Description:
It'`s a two bed mid terrace house built around 1970. Leaks around the tiling and shower have resulted to damp to the floor and ceiling below. Remediation will require the removal of the bath, investigations and repairs including the floor structure and ceilings on the round floor. In view of the leaks and poor condition of the bathroom we recommend that the bathroom is completely refitted. The soil pipe is leaking with the boxing in the hall and this should be opened up, repaired and the boxing reinstated with future access provided. The roof gutters are blocked and regularly overflowing. They should be repaired and replaced immediately with annual clearing in the future. There is also a long term difficulty that roof drainage relies on the neighbouring houses and it may be necessary to install a downpipe with underground drainage on the back and front of this house. The roof tiling undelay felt has perished at the edges and it may be necessary to replace it above the eaves. The ridge and hip capping tiles to the main roof and garage need access for rebidding and repointing to reduce the chance of them being blow off and leaking. The windows are in poor repair with many broken catches. They are dated and repair is probably not justified meaning that the windows will need replacement. The timber door to the store needs replacement. The kitchen fitting is dirty and in poor repair and will need to be refitted. The central heating boiler is dated and inefficient and will need replacement. Internally and externally, the house is in need of preparation and redecoration. Internal doors are poor quality and poorly fitted needing repairs or replacement. The electrical consumer unit is dated and due for replacement for the protection of people in the house. External works include a new path to the front and removal of the decking and handrail in the back garden.
