    It now appears that "some" social housing built in the 50's and 60's could contain RAAC

    It looks like any building (50's - 70's) with a flat roof could be RAAC ?
    This problem is going to be hurrendously expensive to fix
    Hence I am waiting for the cover-ups to start

    While the extent of RAAC is not yet known, there is a reasonable suspicion that it is widespread. Expert chartered architect Philip Morris has advised that “the use of RAAC was quite endemic during 1950s-1990s due to its innovative lightweight structural properties”.

    He says from his own experience that it was used in the construction of both low-rise local authority and private sector housing. Some estimates put it as high as up to 10% of council housing.

    That's 400,000 possible RAAC houses !!
