Cornerstone: Trusted Independent Structural Health Experts
The founders of Cornerstone have a significant history dealing with fire and flood incidents and, our clear knowledge of structural and atmospheric moisture behaviour in affected buildings alongside a transparent reporting process was soon noticed by clients including NHBC, Private Surveyors and Social Housing landlords seeking to determine root causes for a reported damp, condensation and mould problem.
With these prevailing issues every winter period, Cornerstone are conscious of the need for a uniform approach that will serve to deliver credible diagnosis alongside specific guidance for building occupants and structural owners/landlords/managers with particular emphasis on the safety of those who use and occupy the buildings.
With this in mind, we have formalised our proven sequential surveying process with a defined certified output system aligned to the condition of the structure and of equal importance, how the atmosphere is managed for optimum healthy environments.
Watch our video https://vimeo.com/user6174411/review/834323880/1dda0c99ca where we explain the process offering and how it can deliver credible diagnostic support for all those seeking defined causations that will result in confident and cost-effective solutions – for the long term.
You will see that an important aspect when determining the root cause of damp and mould is to recognise it is not due to a single issue with many instances of mould perceived to be a damp wall or ceiling only for it to be proven to not be the case in almost 92% of our surveys undertaken to date.
Where mould developments have been either wiped clean or painted over, in the absence of a credible reason, it will likely return and, if the solutions used were not recognised for dealing with the mould root system, it will return within a quicker timeframe.
We fully recognise the impact of insulations, whole dwelling ventilation rates, structural leakage (permeability) alongside existing or planned retrofit forced ventilations aspects and, are sharing our knowledge with a host of interested parties seeking to improve their understanding of structural and atmospheric issues with the provision of user-friendly…
