Root Cause Analysis
Root Cause Surveys for Properties
Finding the root cause to any problem is an essential step to rectifying the issue long-term. Mould, condensation, damp, structural inadequacies and other problems within a residential property can lead to tenants facing harm to their health, which is why our independent root cause analysis experts can find credible solutions.
If you find yourself questioning why there is a reoccurring theme with ‘fixes’ coming back, the issue may lie with the root cause problem not being resolved at source.
Why Choose Cornerstone As Your Independent Partner For Root Cause Analysis
The root cause analysis survey process embraces external and internal aspects of a structure with photographic evidence where a potential or existing element is or can develop/contribute to an existing or future issue. Surveys that identify the problem at source, includes qualitative and quantitative data gathering where they are deemed pertinent to securing a fact-based outcome for interested parties and any cost effective repairs.
The un-biased, transparent surveying process is also suitable for new-builds to ensure the structure is ready for occupation with recognisable guidance of installed aspects and their optimisation.
