What does a damp survey involve?

22 August 2017

So, after the torrential rain England and Wales have seen in the past few weeks you’ve started to notice the brown tide marks on your internal walls and patches of mould have started to appear. You realise you may need a damp survey but what does a damp survey actually involve? Here at Timberwise a damp survey is carried out in 2 core stages

      1. Surveyor Visit 

It takes a qualified expert to spot potential damp problems and our specialist damp surveyors are CSRT (Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments) qualified.

Our surveyors will inspect the exterior of the property determining the source of moisture into the property as well as look out for future problems that could be caused by the effects of damp.

Next, the surveyor will establish if the property already has an existing damp proof course of any description and if so what type and what condition it is in.

2. Written Report

The damp surveyor will then compile a full report (including where necessary a plan detailing work that needs to be carried out).

Should you have any questions about the report you will have the contact details for our damp and timber surveyor who will answer any questions you may have.

It is vital to correctly identify the damp problem you have so that the correct damp proofing solution can be put in place for your property. For peace of mind that your damp problem is correctly identified and rectified, call our experts today on 0800 288 8660 or arrange a survey online.
