Do you need professional advice concerning moving walls in your home?
Have you been thinking about making internal changes to the rooms in your house? We carry out property surveys for clients selling or buying properties, or even for clients who are just looking for some peace of mind. When you come to us for house surveys, you can trust in our careful and thorough survey.
Restructuring interior walls using RSJ's
It is very popular these days for home owners to alter the arrangement of the rooms in their property, particularly creating a single open plan kitchen dining room from two separate rooms, or creating large openings in walls to lead into extension. We have facilitated some fabulous rooms with innovative structural solutions that conform to the relevant British Standards and Building Regulations, with opening spans of up to ten metres.
Loft Conversion Expansions
We have been involved in the structural solutions for countless loft conversions, with every conceivable arrangement of roofing. Through loft conversions, our clients can take full advantage of the offered space. There are many things that can be done with an extra room, and we want to ensure that you can use this space to its full potential. We frequently work closely alongside our clients, their architects and builders to deliver the optimum solution for the property.
Surveys & Reports
Andrew Lewis Consulting is part of the Institute of Structural Engineers. All of our reports are used by your chosen builder. After an initial inspection of your property, the report we produce will be determined by the type of work that you want to carry out, this might be taking out walls so that rooms can be enlarged or opening up roof-space so that your loft can be converted. Our reports will cover a number of areas including load bearing walls, problems with foundations, roofing requirements and cracks or fissures. Our reports will identify if repair work is needed, what problems there are and what solutions need to be considered and how much you can expect to pay your builder.
