BISF House Structure Exposed

We have updated out Gallery pages with a wide range of images showing a fully exposed BISF exterior house in the process of being repaired and renovated.You can access all of our gallery pages from the main menu at the top of this page.

There are a wide range of images available and listed below are just a small sample.

BISF houses can sometimes be prone to corrosion around the lower portion of the steel stanchions. In most cases and providing your homes outer render coating and exterior walls have been well maintained, corrosion is not normally an issue.

However in certain cases such as those shown below, corrosion can be significant. Fortunately due to the way that BISF houses have been constructed, the repair process to corroded stanchions is pretty straight forward and doesn’t always have to be costly providing you choose a competent building company. In any case, if you suspect that your property may have corrosion issues, you should always seek professional guidance using a RICS aproved surveyor or structural engineer.

We hope you will find these images useful should you have cause to venture into this area.
