Non Invasive testing
The first phase of any building survey is a non-invasive inspection, if concerns are found, then invasive investigation carried out by a specialist is the only way to determine the presence of any concealed damage.
Hppi reports will shed light on any areas of concern visible through non-invasive testing. Our Moisture Meters used on every job, assist us in picking up non-visible areas of concern where moisture levels are raised, But given we will not have permission to cut any holes in the houses we inspect, we will not carry out invasive testing in our standard reports and so, just like all building inspection reports in the market; our reports are not ‘comprehensive moisture reports’.
The aim of a building report is firstly to uncover any visible risks, and if required, more destructive testing may be required to determine the full scope of required repair, and the cause of the issue.
