Franks Portlock is often required to help home-owners with concerns they might have with their own properties.
Our work with home owners normally involves sampling suspect materials and conducting surveys prior to refurbishment work.
Asbestos in private homes is always a concern if it goes undetected, especially for those families with children.
We recently worked with a property in Low Fell, Gateshead that was directed by local architecture firm, Emerald Architects. This involved a complete refit of the premises which needed complete renovation and some reconfiguring of internal walls.
Our surveyor was able to attend the site and ensure that the works could go ahead safely, highlighting issues before the works commenced to ensure that that works aren’t interrupted during the programme.
The new occupants could also be assured that the property doesn’t contain asbestos before they move in.
