The RICS have a data base of all building types, from detached to terraced and the materials the property will be constructed.

The process will ensure that the rebuild calculator is accurate and professionally prepared for £155.00 (inc VAT) so that you can have peace of mind that the whole process has been carried out with skill and diligence to ensure that the rebuild valuation for your property is accurate a humanely possible.
Within the rebuild calculator report it will explain how the surveyor arrived at the rebuild cost. This will include identifying the materials in which the property is constructed, in most cases this would be brick. Other standard construction materials would be steel, stone or concrete. Any other type of material would need to be considered when using the rebuild calculator. Other materials can have an influence on the rebuild cost as they may be in short supply or simply not available. This is particularly important if the building is listed and to comply with building regulations certain stone for example may have to be sourced from a particular quarry which may not be operating any more. Getting the correct information regarding the building materials used to construct your property is really important for the rebuild calculator system.
The surveyor will also take into account the materials used in the construction of the roof. In most cases this is straightforward as most properties in the UK use either slate or tile for their roofs. But what if your property has a thatched roof or a metal roof then the rebuild calculator will be able to take this into account when preparing the rebuild calculator report.
