Damp Surveys In Peterborough

Here at Damp Detectives, our damp specialists use a variety of bespoke equipment, up to date training and competent and thorough knowledge to investigate the cause of any damp or mould issues you may be encountering.  

If you live in Peterborough and need expert assistance to find the root of your damp problem, then our independent damp surveyors can help.  They will find the root cause of the issue and eliminate the problem at the source rather than mask the symptoms with an alternative solution.  

We have a damp specialist near you.  We cover the entirety of Peterborough including but not limited to the city centre, Newark, Paston, Werrington and Woodston.  Unlike some of our competitors, who may offer free surveys with the intention of selling you fixed solutions such as damp proofing or recommending new windows to make a profit, we will only advise you of the necessary work that might need to be completed to fix your problem.  

From rising and penetrating damp to plastering issues and condensation our independent damp specialists will find what is usually a simple solution and will not put you under any pressure to buy any costly or unnecessary extras.  We take pride in being able to continually build our great reputation and like many of our past customers, we are sure that you will be completely satisfied with your damp survey.

How Much Will An Independent Damp Survey Cost?

Every situation and property is different and, as independent damp surveyors, we are unable to offer a fixed quote for a damp survey to any of our customers.  First, get in touch and we can discuss your current circumstances with you to find out the issues you are experiencing.  Provide us with as much information as possible, along with images if you can, to gain a better understanding of the problem.  From here, if you decide to proceed with a survey, we 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.

Richard’s Qualifications

Richard is CSDD qualified (Certified Surveyor in Damp Detection) and is authorised to conduct fully comprehensive inspections of a wide range of damp related issues.

By finding the cause of the problem, he will be able to give advice on the correct course of action to be taken, whether that be for mould, damp or condensation issues.  With his specialist equipment and in depth knowledge, Richard will show you how to rectify your damp problem permanently but without major costs.

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, we 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.  We will get in touch to gather as much information as we can and discuss an estimated, no obligation quote.  If you choose to go ahead with the survey, we can then 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.  After the inspection has been carried out, a full report of the findings can be generated if you have requested it.  At this point, appropriate remedial actions can be discussed.

Richard Bull covers the West Midlands and Black Country areas and surrounding districts. He is a real professional and is independent nad unbiased which is incredibly important, so you don’t get ‘pushed’ into using the contractors who come out and ‘assess’ your property and push their ‘work’ onto you. He is thorough, knowledgeable and trustworthy. He makes sure no stone is unturned and he knows his beans in this industry. I wish I had found him sooner! Don’t hesitate to ring him. My house had extensive EOW damage and he spent hours getting to the bottom of the issues and did a thorough Report. Very impressed indeed.


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.
