Repair external render & repoint
Posted 25 November 2010
Job Description:
Our mortgage provider requires that the following essential repairs be completed within six months of purchase: • Parts of the lead flashing are loose and adrift; this gives potential for rainwater to ingress (11.1). Repair defective flashing around flank chimneystack roof abutment. • Some of the coping tiles on the top of the parapet walls are loose and/or poorly pointed; this could allow moisture to ingress (11.4). Re-bed/re-point where necessary coping tiles to party parapet walls. • In respect of rendering to the main building, there are various hairline render cracks visible and some associated hollow render which can allow rainwater to penetrate by capillary action. To the front elevation, there is facing brickwork to a first floor string and also to the right hand side of the entrance lobby; there is also facing brickwork to the small projecting part of the party wall at the front. To these areas, varying degrees of re-pointing are required, again to prevent potential moisture ingress by capillary action (11.6). Cut back and make good hair cracking in external render and renewing odd hollow sections of external render where necessary. • There are no sub-floor air-vents visible to the rear of the building as in all probability the have been covered/obstructed by the later built rear extension solid floor. When building a ground floor extension with solid floor, trunking for sub-floor air-vents is good practice; it is unknown if the high level of the rear external paving completely covers any rear external air-vents but the present situation is that sub-floor ventilation is considered inadequate. (11.8). Improve the provision for sub-floor air ventilation. We need a quote now and then someone to undertake the work when we take possession of the house (Jan/Feb 2011).
