With any building defect, it is essential that you get a correct diagnosis of the problem before any recommendations for dealing with it can be made. Damp Aid UK deal with problems arising from damp in a building as well as woodworm and timber decay. An initial inspection is carried out by a specialist C.S.R.T. remedial damp-proofing and timber treatment surveyor to correctly diagnose the problem and provide the necessary recommended remedial measure to rectify it. Wherever possible environmentally friendly, cost effective solutions are provided for damp treatment avoiding chemical treatment. If no chemical treatment is needed we will say so.

Some of our competitors use surveyors who are paid by commission. Damp Aid UK does not.

If nothing needs to be done, we will say so.
