Derek Carmichael

Derek is head of damp surveying in the South & South East areas of the UK. Serving postcodes DT, BH, SP, SO, and  PO.

Having dealt with almost every source of damp imaginable, Derek is the one to contact if you have damp, mould or condensation and live in Dorset, Hampshire, Poole, Southampton and Portsmouth.

Derek has worked in a variety of roles which give him an excellent background in dealing with identifying and suggesting solutions to almost any damp or mould problem.

Areas Covered: Dorset, Hampshire, Poole, Southampton and Portsmouth.

Where some surveyors use only one moisture meter we have an extensive range of tools available with the skill and knowledge to back them up.

Any surveys carried out by Damp Detectives South are independent and unbiased. With many other surveyors a “free” survey is often a way of selling a specific product or service regardless of whether it will actually solve the underlying problem. Damp Detectives will never suggest remedial work unless it is necessary.

Further to your Damp Survey of 5th February, I had meant to tell you that we were subsequently able to come to an arrangement with the window fitter for him to return and fit lead flashing along the join between conservatory and house. We have had fairly heavy rain on a number of occasions since and I am pleased to inform you that there have been no leaks!

Many thanks for your assistance with this, and also with pointing out the other areas of concern.

Thank you for coming today – great service, very knowledgeable and I feel confident in what I have to do to sort it.
