In this period of higher living costs we understand that decisions about solving damp, mould and condensation problems in your home have to be considered carefully in your budget. So you might be tempted to go for what might appear to be the cheap option of a free or cheap survey. However these are offered by builders who understandably make their living from expensive building work and are unlikely to find the cause of the problem. We often hear the saying “I had some proofing work done but the damp has come back“.
As independent damp surveyors, Tim & Andy will be able to investigate the cause of any damp or mould issues you may be experiencing using a range of specialised tools, up to date training and his own professional and comprehensive understanding, without pressuring you into buying non-essential products.
and surrounding areas.
As you can appreciate every situation and property is different. Get in touch and provide us with as much information, and images if appropriate, as possible to gain a better understanding of the problem. From here, Tim & Andy will be able to provide you with an estimated survey cost. For your own reference, these surveys generally cost less than a basic home buyer’s survey, offering outstanding value for money.
First, fill out the contact form on the right. They can then get in touch, gather any information he may need from you and discuss an estimated quote. If you choose to go ahead with the survey, Tim & Andy will book an appointment with you to visit the property and will liaise with tenants, estate agents and property owners where necessary in order to carry out the survey.
For a smaller, residential property a survey will usually take around three hours. The main areas of concern will be investigated as well as an extensive property inspection to make sure that nothing is overlooked. Tim & Andy will also inspect any remedial measures that may have been implemented and examine the impact these may have had on the property.
After the inspection has been carried out, a full report of the findings can be generated if you have requested it. At this point, Tim & Andy can advise of any appropriate remedial actions that may need to be performed to help combat the issue.
Everyone needs a DampDetective Paul in their lives!
From the moment I spoke to Paul to enquire about a damp issue flagged up in building survey I knew we were in safe hands.
Paul took time to explain absolutely everything, both before and after the survey. Nothing was too much trouble. The Report was very clear, detailed and informative. Extremely professional, exceptionally knowledgable and trustworthy guy.
The fact that Paul is independent meant we were able to gain a greater understanding of what work actually needed doing. Paul was also able to advise if it was of urgent concern or something to factor in for the future and general upkeep of the cottage.
Undoubtedly, the best investment we have made in the whole house buying process!
Having consulted a number of advisory agencies of this type over the years, I found their service to be very professional, confident and thorough; when they gave me advice I knew it could be trusted. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
