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 specialist C.S.R.T. damp & timber surveyors 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-proof treatment avoiding chemical damp-proofing and timber treatments. If no chemical treatment is needed will say so.
Some London based timber treatment & damp-proofing companies use damp-proof surveyors who are paid by commission. Damp Aid UK does not. Our damp & timber decay inspections are carried out only by surveyors qualified in remedial building problems, and whilst all damp-proofing and timber treatment companies need to make a profit, our surveyors are not motivated by commission earnings and we do not need to find unnecessary work to quote for. If nothing needs to be done, we will say so.
Before waiting for a purchaser to have a ‘free damp and timber survey’ it would be considered prudent, for any homeowner selling their property, to have their own damp survey and written report undertaken to find the full extent and costs of any suspected rising damp, woodworm, & timber decay thus avoiding any potential buyer withdrawing their offer and pulling out of a property sale.
Specialist Damp Surveys & Reports in London
Damp surveys will be carried out by a fully qualified C.S.R.T. specialist damp surveyor who is an expert in the damp and timber industry, having been specifically trained in this field.
Depending on the instructions received, a damp 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). The whole property will be visually inspected for signs of significant condensation, (backed up by measurements taken with a thermo hygrometer, if it is considered advisable to do so). External observations will be made and relevant comments on building defects such as rainwater goods, external render, poor sub-floor ventilation, 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.
Timber Specialist Surveys in London
Accessible timbers will be inspected for wood-boring insect attack or timber decay (dry rot, wet rot). Roof timbers will be inspected for woodworm infestation & timber decay 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.
