With any building defect, it is essential that you get the correct diagnosis of a problem before any recommendations for dealing with it can be made. Damp Aid UK – Chester deal with problems arising from damp in a building as well as woodworm and timber decay. Having gained crucial understanding of the nature of dampness and timber infestation, our aim is to provide an accurate diagnosis of the actual causes, not just identifying the presenting symptoms. An initial inspection is carried out by a qualified specialist damp and timber surveyor and by correctly identifying the cause of a problem, appropriate recommendations can be made and advice given, providing clients with the awareness to make informed decisions and to avoid potentially costly and inappropriate chemical treatments often recommended by other damp-proofing treatment companies.

The services provided by Damp Aid UK – Chester include a damp and/or timber survey & quotation (where necessary), damp proofing, remedies for damp walls, woodworm treatment & dry rot control, along with various remedial works (often highlighted in a home buyers report) such as external ground lowering, re-plastering, sub-floor ventilation etc. In a high proportion of the properties we have surveyed, chemical damp proofing treatment has not been necessary. Some of our clients have been provided with quotations from other damp-proof companies for a damp proof course injection. However, by lowering the external ground level or repairing defective rainwater goods, the damp wall has dried out naturally without the need for any chemical injection treatment.
Wherever possible, we try to eliminate any damp in walls by environmentally friendly measures instead of immediately recommending chemical damp-proof injection. Likewise, when woodworm has been found by a client, our first aim is to ascertain if the woodworm infestation is active or even a species requiring treating, before we recommend woodworm treatment. If no chemical treatment is needed – we will say so!
Our clients who have required damp proofing, woodworm treatment or dry rot control from a reputable damp proofing / timber treatment company range from domestic house holders & commercial properties through to Government buildings, Government departments and utility companies. With nearly three decades of successfully treating damp problems, rising damp, woodworm, dry rot, wet rot and condensation, Damp Aid UK – Chester have built a reputation of providing a quality service with very competitive prices and a personal one-to-one service with all our clients.
Damp & timber surveys, reports and/or quotations are provided by our fully qualified and experienced C.S.R.T. remedial surveyors, who are not on commission, therefore do not need to “find work”. After carrying out the inspection we will provide you with the details of the correct diagnosis, recommendations on curing or treating any damp wall, woodworm or timber decay and, if necessary, a quotation detailing any proposed treatment or remedial work to be carried out.

Depending on the instructions received, the surveyor will inspect all accessible walls at ground floor level for rising damp using an electric resistance meter and visible observations. (However, he will not normally move external obstructions or internal furnishings). External observations will be made and relevant comments on building defects such as rainwater goods, external render etc, will be made where appropriate, to the client or in the report if submitted. Any visual evidence of timber decay will also be reported upon. Our pre-purchase specialist damp & timber survey and report will satisfy the mortgage loan providers & all other major lenders.
Specialist Timber Surveys in Chester Mickle Trafford, Guilden Sutton, Hoole, Saltney, Christleton, Handbridge, Moston, Waverton and Westminster Park.
Following the client’s instructions, accessible timbers will be inspected for wood boring insect attack or timber decay (dry rot, wet rot). Roof timbers will be inspected if safe access is available. Floor timbers will be inspected where accessible. With occupied properties the inspections are usually limited. Fitted carpets will not normally be lifted (unless loose) or furniture moved. Floorboards will not be lifted unless they are loose enough to do so without causing any damage. Staircase timbers will be inspected, except where fitted carpets are present. Soffits to the underside of the staircase often prevent inspection of the timbers too.
