Our Independent PRC Structural Engineers are FULLY qualified to oversee PRC repairs and issue PRC certification
If you are considering repairing your PRC home a PRC Structural Engineer will oversee the project and issue certification once the works have been carried out to his satisfaction.
If a PRC repair has already been done but no Certificate has been issued then an intrusive inspection of the property must be carried out (minimum disruption caused) to establish what method was used and to what standard. This process involves exposing certain parts of the property by yourselves or a builder for inspection by a PRC Inspector.
If a PRC property has not been repaired in accordance with a recognised repair scheme we will advise you of your options. On some occasions a small amount of additional works can be carried out by yourselves or one of our experienced teams to bring the property up to full PRC Homes repair standards and then certification can be issued.
If you are offered a PRC Certificate and a full inspection has not been carried out by a qualified PRC Structural Engineer then be very careful. It has been known for unqualified people to have carried out only a visual inspection, if so they will not have identified any areas that are not up to the required standards. This will cause problems in the future and could put you at odds with the legal requirements of your Lender.
If you are in any doubt as to the authenticity of your PRC Certificate or wish to confirm that the correct procedures have been followed, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
