Example text

For example in inner London, thanks to our Victorian forebears, we have an old combined system which takes all foul water and storm water to the same sewer. Unfortunately the system can become overloaded in heavy rainstorms leading to flooding in basements and cellars. In outer London and most other parts of the country we have separate storm water and foul water sewers and it is against local regulations to run storm water into the foul water drain. When a storm sewer is not available the storm water will typically be run into soakaways in the form of land drains or soakaway pits.

With experience you can distinguish between ceilings and stud walls surfaced in plasterboard and those surfaced in lath and plaster. Similarly, the difference between a suspended timber floor and a solid concrete floor is usually fairly obvious. However, there will be cases where the result of this type of stamping and tapping is inconclusive and if you cannot confirm what a ceiling, wall or floor is made of, then say so in the report and follow this up with any necessary additional advice. It is at this stage that any damp testing is undertaken and a careful check made around the skirtings, under windowsills and at other vulnerable points for damp and associated timber defects.

Poplar roots can extend for a distance of up to twice the height of the tree in search of moisture. I have also found ash trees to have searching root systems, and a particular liking for entering cracked drains and disturbing paving, quite apart from their possible effects on shallow foundations. It is recommended that surveyors practising in localities where shrinkage clays are found should familiarise themselves with the various aspects of this particular problem, and that they should be able to identify any species of tree encountered during their work where this seems necessary.
