Are you in the process of purchasing a property in the North West?  It is always advisable to have a pre-purchase general home condition survey / property survey carried out by a building surveyor. It is also in one’s best interest to have an in-depth pre purchase specialist timber & damp report carried out by property care damp specialists, especially if problems have been highlighted in a surveyors home buyers report. It is important to have a property checked for rising dampness & inspected for woodworm infestation, prior to exchanging contracts, so the cost of any damp-proofing and timber treatment for wood boring beetles can be negotiated with the vendor.

Damp Aid surveyors have been providing damp surveys, woodworm surveys, dry rot surveys & specialist mortgage damp and timber reports since 1984 and are recognised  as one of the North West’s most established and respected damp specialists in surveying and diagnosing problems with rising damp, penetrating damp, condensation, dry rot wood rotting fungi, woodworm.  We have carried out countless surveys and saved many clients thousands of pounds on unnecessary chemical damp-proofing & timber treatment work on properties in the  North West.

If a more in-depth specialist damp and timber survey & report has been requested by your mortgage lender, home buyer / building surveyor, it may seem like a worrying prospect, especially if you are a first time buyer, but be assured, this is normal practice and should not discourage you from buying a new house. It is important for you to ensure that your new property is free from any damp and timber defects which could get progressively worse and depreciate your investment.

If you have been informed by the vendor that previous specialist damp proofing & woodworm treatment has been carried out by property care specialists, which is guaranteed, you and your solicitors are advised to check exactly which areas of the property have been treated, if the company is a registered  member of the Property Care Association (PCA) and if the damp-proofing contractors guarantee is valid. Never assume that the property is entirely covered and check that the property care specialist damp-proofing & woodworm timber treatment company in the North West is still trading.

We provide pre-purchase specialist damp and timber reports for mortgage approval purposes along with reports for owners selling or applying for equity release remortgage loans.These specialist timber & damp reports from property care specialists are usually required by banks and building societies as a condition of a mortgage application offer being accepted.

C.S.R.T. qualified specialist damp-proofing and timber treatment surveyors will carry out a thorough survey of the property and test to determine the exact cause of any defects. Surveyors will carry out a damp & timber decay inspection to sub-floor timbers and lift floor boards wherever possible to check for signs of dry / wet rot to floor joists, take random moisture reading, using a calibrated moisture meter and inspect the property externally to check that the amount of sub-floor ventilation ( air bricks ) is sufficient. You will be issued with a comprehensive report from property care specialists, detailing our surveyors findings and what remedial work is recommended, including images and a floor plan.

You may be enticed by the offer of a “free survey” by other damp-proofing & timber treatment companies based in the North West, however some damp-proofing contractors and surveyors invariably state that your property has rising dampness and will unsurprisingly recommend the installation of a chemical damp-proof course together with timber treatments. These treatments offered by non PCA approved damp-proofing specialists & dry rot treatment companies in the North West are rarely required and completely unjustifiable.

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.
