Pipe Tracing Survey London
What is a pipe tracing survey?
The purpose of a pipe tracing survey is to identify and measure, in a non-destructive manner, the paths that all the pipework of a given property follows. This is with the end goal of building a comprehensive map of all hidden pipe systems. This would include the mapping of your gas, central heating, underfloor heating, mains water, and cold water systems.
Why do I need a Pipe Tracing Survey?
We utilise a number of different technological approaches in order to accurately trace a structures pipe system, these can include thermal imagery, endoscopic cameras, ultrasound scanners and metal detectors. This pipe tracing map can serve a number of purposes. It can provide an invaluable point of reference for any future planned renovations you have, so to avoid any undesired damage or destruction to the pipe network.
Or, a pipe trace map can help guide a technician in future any re-routing works or unexpected repair works in instances such as leaks. If you do have a leak or condensation, a pipe mapping exercise may be vital to help locate the pipe at fault, or even just to know where your stop-cock is.
What do I get with a Pipe Tracing Survey?
With a pipe tracing survey you will, be provided with a ‘pipe map’, which would take the form of a comprehensive diagrammatic representation of your property and pipe networks accompanied with precise measurements and locations.
In conjunction with this map you will be provided with a full written report, which may also be supported with thermal and endoscopic imagery taken during the survey. This map will become an invaluable tool of reference for your records, for a number of corrective actions or future renovations you may wish to take.

I contacted James de Miguel after a recommendation from a friend. My brand new house developed a series of cracks on the exterior walls and after numerous failed attempts by local builders, surveyors and even the original architect, to try and identify the cause of these cracks I had no clue what to do next. Thankfully, James was able to identify the exact cause of the issues and handed me a detailed report on what had caused the cracking and the next steps to take in order to remedy them. I couldn’t be happier with the result.
I have been working with James de Miguel for a few years now and can honestly say that I have not come across a more savvy surveyor when it comes to fault finding. James is switched on, his reports are always on time and he has never failed to deliver. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone seeking a definitive answer as to what exactly is going wrong with their building. I now consult with James on all projects I undertake as his input is vital to the success of my projects. A big thank you to James and his team.
I have been building houses for over 10 years and from time to time, new builds develop faults that can be tricky to trace. We brought in James de Miguel to provide us with a report on where we were going wrong with a rather complicated new build that involved a basement that was allowing water ingress. Within half an hour of being on site James and his colleagues identified the issues and provided the exact steps to fix them. Without his survey, I feel we would of been chasing our own tails for days if not weeks, trying to find out why we had so much water ingress. James has saved us time and money and we are very grateful that we found him.
