Timberwise surveyor: Tom Dear

Tom Dear

Managing Surveyor and Waterproofing Design Specialist CSRT CSSW ACABE

Hi, I’m Tom.

Thank you for visiting my profile.

Having studied and obtained a MSc in Geographical Information Science I began my career in surveying working for a company involved with renewable heating – my particular area of expertise was in biomass boiler systems. I became interested in the world of property preservation  as a result of work carried out on a buy to let property that I own. The property was partially underground and as a result needed waterproofing using a cavity drain membrane system. It was from that point that I became fascinated with preserving buildings from damp and decay and shifted my career towards property preservation. I studied and obtained my CSRT qualification in summer 2016.

In addition to being a timber and damp remedial surveyor, I am also a qualified basement waterproofing specialist. I hold the industry recognised Certificated Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing qualification (CSSW).

In 2016, I was recruited as a surveyor at Timberwise, joining the South West team and specialising in the surveying of customers properties within the region.

When not in the office

I live just outside Torquay which I love as I’m a water sports nut. Most of my free time is spent surfing, rowing and sea swimming. I also have two young children and can be found enjoying family time on the beach most weekends.
