Your property is probably the largest investment you will ever make therefore it’s in your best interest to keep it in good shape. Water is the stuff of life but can be a buildings worst enemy. Damp and timber problems can cause untold damage if left untreated and can end up costing large sums of money to resolve. Catching damp and timber issues early is the best way to save your property and your money.
We are property and science geeks who love nothing more than inspecting a property like a crime scene. We have adopted a holistic whole house approach when dealing with damp issues. Rather than simply looking at the symptoms of a damp or timber issue and prescribing a quick fix, we like to dig deeper to discover the source(s) of the issue and deliver a well-constructed, scientific solution that will last.
One of our qualified, experienced and friendly surveyors will undertake the damp and timber survey.
All of our surveyors are CSRT, CSJK and/or CSSW qualified meaning they hold the highest qualifications in the industry, certified by the Property Care Association (PCA). We are truly passionate about what we do and love to communicate our findings in an easy to understand way rather than baffle people with industry technojargon.

The surveyor will take a holistic whole house approach to the property. Therefore, the survey will look at the entirety of the property to ensure all symptoms and sources of dampness, structural damage and timber degradation are detected. They will investigate any sources of moisture and water ingress into the property including penetrating and rising damp, condensation, hygroscopic salts, leaking services, defective rainwater goods and more. Any timber decay or fungal growth will be inspected and analysed comprehensively. Our specialist tool kit will be deployed to get to the bottom of any issues, this includes the tools listed below.
Throughout the survey, they will be able to inform you about what they are seeing, in a clear and understandable way. This will include a verbal description of the diagnosed problem and potential solutions and a breakdown of the problems the property is facing. If you have any questions at all the surveyor will be more than happy to answer them for you during the visit.
The duration of the survey will depend greatly on the size of the property and nature of the issues which it is facing. We would expect to take a minimum of 1 hour for a standard 2-bedroom property.
Our reports are thorough and in depth, including our findings and photographs of areas of interest. We will also include a quotation for any work that should be undertaken. The report will be delivered via PDF or post depending on your preferences. Our reports are often used in legal matters due to the trustworthiness of the content and the professionalism of the report.
Our team of tradesmen are on hand and ready to complete any work that needs to be undertaken. This means that you can rest assured that the work will be completed to the highest standard. Our damp and timber repairs come with a 10-year Guarantee, giving you peace of mind.
