Building Inspections Edinburgh

          Building Inspections and Condition Surveys

Stone can be the most unloved part of the building that can sometimes go many years in-between inspections. It’s important to carry out a building inspection and building survey at least every five years to help care and remove loose/dangerous masonry before it falls. We at Edinburgh Stonemasons Ltd Rope Access team are the only trained Stonemasons in Scotland that can help with this. We also work with a Charted Building Surveyor, which enables us to carry out detailed and specialist building surveys in Edinburgh and across the country.


Please see below some examples of loose masonry in Edinburgh.  This video demonstrates why building inspections are essential to ensuring that your building remains safe.
