The purpose of a roof survey, in its most general sense, is to assess the condition and general state of deterioration of your roof, to find points of deterioration. Our technicians can inspect and provide feedback for a large array of potential failures in the fabric of a roof.
These can include discontinuity and inadequacies in the installation of insulation (for both warm and cold roof construction), faults and damage to external membranes, felts and tiles, signs of water leaks or damp ingress, to the roofs general energy efficiency performance. We are able to provide surveys for both flat and pitched roofs.

By the utilisation of various techniques, such as flood and dye testing, thermal imagery, ultrasound scans and gas tracers, we can get to the bottom of, and diagnose any problem that may be missed in more general surveys. In very specific situations where requirements dictate, we are also able call on the expertise of structural engineers and party wall surveyors as part of the assessment.

Following a roof survey, you will be provided with a comprehensive written report discussing the makeup of your roof and the concerns you had to authorising the survey.

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.
