Why Insitu?

In a world as fast paced as ours, and with so many damp proofing websites shouting that they’ll fix all your problems for “free”, sometimes, it’s just easier to call for a chat over the phone and describe your damp issue, prior to booking a survey. You can then make your own mind up as you speak to one of our surveyors and listen first-hand to their evident enthusiasm for all things damp.

We can proudly say that we all love our vocations. One of our surveyors in particular is a keen naturalist and collects various funguses and wood boring insects; he even grows dry rot in a fish tank and films it. This isn’t just a ‘job’ to us, it is a combination of science and nature and we all enjoy both subjects immensely.

We are not a start-up, mobile operation offering “free” surveys. We are a well established company and a highly regarded building preservation company whom are recommended by local authorities, architects, surveyors, estate agents, and most importantly, word of mouth. We do charge a small fee for our services and for what you receive in return, we value that as a very good deal.

We are a very people friendly company and get along with everyone we meet. Together with our many years of knowledge and helpful damp solutions, we can proudly say that we’ve never had an unhappy customer. We like to see ourselves as the peacemakers between homeowner and Mother Nature.

INSITU SCP has a great understanding of a damp house and the unwanted stress it can cause to the homeowner. We can locate, diagnose and solve a diverse range of issues. We can even offer a monitoring service post survey so to keep an eye on fluctuating damp issues that need more consideration.

Our Services

Woodworm

The characteristic woodworm holes are exit holes made by the emerging adult beetles

Wet Rot

Wet Rot (Coniophora puteana) is a less serious and damaging problem than dry rot.

Dry Rot

Look out for fungal strands along the timber and through or along any walls

Basement Waterproofing

If you have a basement, cellar or other room which is below ground level or where external ground levels are next to internal floor levels it will require waterproofing to prevent water from entering your home.

Rising Damp

The visible signs of rising damp include staining above skirting level!

Drone Survey

We use a high tech drone and a combination of high definition telephoto lenses...
