Damp Surveys In Surrey & Sussex

Paul Churcher
Independent Damp and Mould Surveyor

Paul Churcher Damp Detectives – An Independent Damp Surveyor Covering Postcodes Epsom (KT), Farnham(GU) and Crawley (RH)

As one of our independent damp surveyors, Paul 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.

Here at Damp Detectives we can reassure you that we are only interested in finding the root of your damp problem and will look to resolve the issue at the source rather than offering an option to mask the symptoms.  Unlike many other companies, who may offer free surveys with the intention of selling you fixed solutions such as damp proofing or even suggesting new windows to make their money, we will only advise you of the essential work that may need to be carried out.  The solutions are often quite simple and there will be no pressure from us to purchase any unnecessary extras, which could save you money.  We are continually building a great reputation and like numerous past customers have been, we are sure that you will be completely satisfied with your damp survey.

How Much Will An Independent Damp Survey Cost?

As you can appreciate every situation and property is different, therefore we are unable to offer a fixed quote for a damp survey to any of our customers.  The first step would be to get in touch with Paul who can discuss your current circumstances with you to augment the issues you are experiencing.  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, Paul 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.

Can A Survey Be Completed At My Property?

Surveys can be carried out at many types of properties including residential and commercial premises.  Whether you are the homeowner or have a business tenancy agreement, Paul can carry out a very thorough survey and will be able to provide you with a highly detailed report afterwards.

What do I Need To Do To Start The Process?

First, fill out the contact form on the right.  Paul 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, Paul 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.  Paul 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, Paul can advise of any appropriate remedial actions that may need to be performed to help combat the issue.
