State of deterioration

The term state of deterioration refers to the current manifest damaged situation of the building, the work or the artefact at the time of the survey or investigation.

It represents the state of neglect and the current damaged context of the structure caused by various factors such as weather, ageing, abandonment and neglect.

The state of deterioration and the crack pattern are related to each other and often they are reciprocally causal phenomena.
