Building Defect Investigations and Surveys

Building defect investigations and surveys are needed not only when problems arise but when assurance is required that defects do not exist or that the standard of construction is such that problems are unlikely.

Stanger have extensive experience of this type of work and in addition to the normal methods of investigation (drilled dust sampling, covermeter, crack measurement, etc) provides sophisticated techniques such as Borescope and Thermography Analysis. Investigations on-site are supported by a comprehensive range of laboratory, analytical and testing facilities capable of tackling most materials problems whether of an engineering, chemical, geotechnical or metallurgical nature.


We have in-house expertise and experience to deal with all types of investigation or survey from simple materials sampling and analysis through engineer led defect investigation to the preparation and presentation of expert reports.

We test for defects in :-
  • 'As-build' surveys
  • Brickwork and wall tiles
  • Car parks
  • Cladding
  • Concrete
  • Compliance with specification
  • Corrosion of reinforcement
  • Cover and depth of carbonation
  • Cracking, delamination and spalling
  • Dampness, water penetration and condensation
  • Deterioration of structures and finishes
  • Factories and production units
  • Floor screeds
  • HAC and chlorides
  • High-rise buildings
  • Impact
  • Insulation
  • Material composition
  • Medium and low rise buildings
  • Mortars, renders and plasters
  • Private and local authority
  • Residential and commercial
  • Roads, paths and parking areas
  • Roofs - flat and pitched
  • Slippiness
  • Structural integrity
  • Warehouses and industrial units
  • Workmanship
