Defects / Condition Survey
Our Defect / Condition Survey empowers you to know your property's current condition and what issues to rectify.
Our condition survey covers the current state of your property at the time of inspection. Whether you require a survey of your property under construction, after construction / renovation, and/or simply a survey on specific defects, we will provide a report with photos on the state of the property and recommendations on rectification works (if any).

Defect & Condition Survey - Kim Sia Court
A frustrated owner called us to investigate the mould appearing in many areas within his unit.
Using a moisture meter and digital thermometer, we found out that the ceiling and walls were damp which is a contributing factor for mould growth. The air-conditioning of the above unit was apparently on 24 hours a day at a very low temperature setting. This created a differential in temperature which caused condensation and dampness within the building material.
We followed with a report that our Client could use to report to the Strata Titles Boards for any mediation.
Defect & Condition Survey - 420 Woodlands st 41
Our client called us to assess the condition of the pointing work done by his contractor. Several repair attempts were made on the pointing which made the tiling floor look untidy.
The grout seemed to have been patched up in layers at every repair attempt. The tile joints cannot be 'grouted over' successfully as the new layer will be too thin and will not adhere to the grout. It is always recommended that the old grout is removed when replacing or repairing grout.

We carried out a Defect & Condition Survey to this property with regards to water seepage. The internal finishes as well as built-in furniture against the party wall experienced moisture damaged such as paint blistering, mouldy and rotten plywood respectively.
Several attempts to rectify the water seepage from the internal side of the wall failed as the source of water ingress was not rectified.

We were called upon to evaluate a crack on a wall for our Client, the buyer of a resale unit. The concern was to assess whether the unit was structurally safe.
After investigation, the crack was on a partition wall and the structure of the unit was safe. We repaired the crack and our client happily proceeded with the sales of the unit.
Defect & Condition Survey - Blk 513 Yishun
We investigated a water seepage issue that has been bugging our Client for months. With the shoddy works done at the joint of the external walls, it is to no surprise that there might be water seepage occurring inside the units.
The repair to the seepage was apparently done a few months back, but our Client wanted to have peace of mind that the seepage was arrested. Unfortunately or fortunately, we found out that there were still dampness present.
We also did a check to all external walls using thermal scanner and moisture meter to verify that there were no other seepages.
Defect & Condition Survey - V on Shenton
Marble flooring enhances the look and value of a property. However, if there is excessive tonality and/or character mismatched of the marble tiles, the flooring may look dull and unattractive.
With our technical experience with marble, we were able to help our Client in assessing the marble flooring within her unit and represented her to discuss and negotiate with the Developer on the excessive tonality issues.
Furthermore, we were engaged to follow up with her contractor on dry laying and assessing the new marble flooring. Our Client could trust our professionalism and experience to ensure that her new marble floor is nice and attractive.
Defect & Condition Survey - Callidora Ville
We were engaged to assess the structural integrity and cracks within our Client's unit.
Cracks were observed at many areas on the floor, walls and ceilings. Our Client was relieved to know that there were no signs of structural damage. There were evidences that may explained the occurrence of the cracks.
