We provide PCA damp surveys, reports & quotations along with information and honest practical advice, together with environmentally friendly chemical free solutions for controlling dampness and timber decay; therefore avoiding unnecessary, costly & disruptive chemical damp-proof course injection & timber treatments offered by some remedial damp-proofing companies & timber treatment specialists.
We have over 30 years of experience in the damp-proofing and timber treatment service industry dealing with all types of damp & timber decay problems. Having gained crucial understanding of the nature of dampness and timber infestation,by simply applying in-depth building pathology techniques our aim is to provide an accurate diagnosis of the actual causes of dampness & fungal timber decay, not just identifying the presenting symptoms. By correctly identifying the cause of a problem, appropriate recommendations can be made and advice given, providing clients with the awareness to make informed decisions and to avoid potentially costly and inappropriate chemical damp-proof & timber treatments.
If you are considering or in the process of buying a property in Shropshire, 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 and woodworm timber treatment works can be negotiated with the vendor. All services offered by damp Aid are to control and prevent rising damp, timber decay and woodworm infestation, which can cause most damage to homes & buildings.

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. 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. Our 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 work to quote for. If nothing needs to be done, we will say so.
Damp Surveys & Reports for Rising Dampness & Condensation in Shropshire 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.
Timber Surveys & Reports for Woodworm, Dry Rot, Timber Decay & Wood Boring Beetle Insect Attack in Shropshire Accessible floor timbers will be surveyed 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.
