Building defects database

How well do you know your defects? Our building defects database contains over 300 images with expert commentary from leading industry practitioners and legal experts. From best practice to guidance and insight, each image is an example of an actual defect encountered during a routine inspection or investigation.

This database is an essential tool for both experienced and training surveyors. Experienced practitioners understand that no defect is alike and will welcome the opportunity to see new examples of building defects, the problems they cause and the best practice solutions. Training surveyors will benefit from viewing real-life examples that will support their understanding of building defects and the implications they have for building structures and for those who use or live in them. The expert commentary often acts as a pointer towards further research and the appropriate remedial work that may be required.

The technical editor for the building defects database is Tim Kenny of Tim Kenny Surveying.
