A Potential Costly Mistakes Due to Mis-Diagnosis (Example)
Pre-purchase damp and timber decay survey – Aberconway Road, Prestatyn, Denbighshire, North Wales LL19 9HH
First time buyers had put in an offer on a 1930 semi detached property in Prestatyn, near Llandudno North Wales. A building society valuation surveyor carried out a homebuyers survey. The surveyors report highlighted areas of rising dampness and possible timber decay to the ground floor. A damp-proofing and timber treatment company based near Prestatyn, LL19, offering free damp surveys, was recommended by the north wales estate agent selling the property. A specialist damp company provided a damp and timber report which indicated rising damp to all the external walls and an outbreak of dry rot to an area of flooring. The price for the installation of a new chemical damp-proof course, associated re-plastering works came to the cost of £6,610.00 + vat, which prompted the building society to put a retention on the property until the remedial works had been carried out.
The buyers commissioned us to carry out a specialist damp and timber survey on their behalf. Upon inspection of the property in North Wales, we found that the dampness was due to a raised tarmac drive and patio area, which was bridging the original bitumen physical damp-proof course. The raised ground levels were also obstructing all the sub-floor ventilation air bricks and the “dry rot outbreak” reported by other dry rot treatment companies in North Wales was, in fact, wet rot due to the high external ground level and insufficient sub-floor ventilation.
The works (and costs) recommended by the North Wales based damp-proofing and timber treatment company was completely unnecessary. All that was required was the lowering of the external ground levels, which opened up the existing air bricks and the replacement of the two joist ends affected by timber decay. These remedial works were carried out by a local north wales building contractor, for a total cost of £590.00 + vat. Completely environmentally friendly and without the need for costly specialist damp-proof & timber treatment recommended by the other companies. Needless to say, following this work, the retention was withdrawn by the mortgage lender. Happy Days!!!
If you are considering or in the process of buying a property in North Wales, it is always advisable to anyone purchasing a house to have a pre-purchase property survey carried out by a building surveyor. It is also advisable to have an in-depth pre purchase timber & damp survey and general condition survey carried out, especially if problems have been highlighted in the surveyors report. It is important to do this, prior to exchanging contracts, so the cost of any damp-proofing & woodworm timber treatment works can be negotiated with the vendor. All services offered by Damp Aid are to control and prevent damp, timber decay and woodworm infestation, which can cause most damage to homes & buildings.
Damp Surveys & Reports for Rising Dampness & Condensation in North Wales.
Depending on your instructions received, a damp-proofing an timber treatment 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, poor sub-floor ventilation, 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.
Timber Surveys & Structural Reports for Woodworm Infestation, Dry Rot, Timber Decay & Wood Boring Beetle Insect Attack in North Wales.
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 to the loft 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. Our specialist damp and timber surveys and reports issued will satisfy the mortgage lenders.
