With any building defect, it is essential that you get an accurate diagnosis of the damp decay 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 CSRT surveyor to correctly diagnose the problem, using in-depth building pathology techniques, and provide the necessary recommended remedial measure to rectify it. Wherever possible environmentally friendly cost effective holistic solutions are provided for damp-proofing treatments avoiding chemical treatment. If no chemical damp treatment is needed we will say so.
Some of our competitors use damp & timber decay surveyors who are paid by commission. Damp Aid UK does not. Our damp decay inspections are carried out only by surveyors qualified in remedial building problems, and whilst all companies need to make a profit, our surveyors are not motivated by commission earnings and we do not need to find unnecessary damp decay work to quote for. If nothing needs to be done, we will say so.
Specialist Damp Surveys
The survey will be carried out by a fully qualified C.S.R.T. specialist surveyor who is an expert in the damp and timber industry, having been specifically trained in this field.
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). 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 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.
Specialist Timber Surveys
Accessible timbers will be inspected by woodworm treatment specialists 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.
