The report identifies locations where steel is vulnerable to corrosion, and gives general advice on the likely integrity and future durability of protection systems, and the rate at which unprotected steel might corrode in the future. The report should be read in conjunction with the reports on individual systems published by BRE. Most corrosion encountered so far in the inspections has been of a superficial nature. However, there are a few dwellings where corrosion in particular parts of the construction is more advanced. Corroded rolled steel, where it occurs, is relatively easy to cut away and replace with standard sections. The majority of steel houses are expected to give good performance into the foreseeable future, and should have a life on a par with rehabilitated dwellings in conventional construction. 66 pages.
