Tree Reports for Home Buyers

Concerns regarding tree roots which may affect the foundations of a property occur when the underlying ground has shrinkable properties.

In order to assess the risks it is necessary to establish the tree species and its distance from the property, the depth of the foundations, and to recover soils samples for laboratory tests to determine the ‘Shrinkage Potential’ of the clay.

From these factors it is possible to assess the risks using tables from the NHBC Standards. We offer prompt reports to suit the requirements of insurance and mortgage companies, aiming to have the finished product to you within 24-48hrs.
