PRC Repairs Bristol Unity Houses
Unity type PRC houses are repaired to a PRC Homes Ltd approved repair scheme. Once the PRC repairs have been completed a PRC certificate is issued by the PRC Engineer. The PRC certificate confirms that the repairs have been carried out in accordance with the licence requirements and is acceptable to mortgage lenders to offer mortgages at normal interest rates.
The repair works for a Unity type house remove the external PRC (prefabricated reinforced concrete) panels and supporting concrete posts.If the external walls have been cladded with insulation this must be removed.
As the new cavity walls are wider than the existing PRC walls the foundations are extended. Scaffolding is erected so that the PRC external walls can be removed. The internal lining breeze block wall remains in place.
The new cavity wall is built with insulation in the cavity to conform to current building regulations. The Local Authority building inspector is also appointed to carry out inspections this cost is also included within the quotation.
In most cases new doors and windows are fitted along with new soffits, fascia and guttering. The old soil pipe is usually replaced as well. Internally the plastering is made good around the new doors and windows and any cracks which may appear are filled in ready for the Client to decorate.
French doors are a popular addition along with a new porch. Our latest PRC projects
