What is Involved In a Damp Survey?
There’s a lot that is involved in a damp survey. A damp survey is critical in preserving the integrity of a property. First, we expertly identify the specific type of damp problem lurking within. Then, we go beyond surface-level observations to investigate the underlying causes by locating the source of moisture.
The damp survey involves a thorough examination of the existing damp proof course, damp walls and a close inspection of any other structural flaws. Not only that, but we also anticipate potential future headaches such as dry rot or wet rot that may arise as a result of the damp situation.
As qualified damp surveyors, we not only identify the problems but also provide an upfront brief on the potential damp proofing required to protect the property. Our dedication culminates in a comprehensive written report that concisely outlines the identified issues and prescribes the necessary steps to address them. This comprehensive approach ensures that property owners are not only informed but also have a clear roadmap for managing and getting rid of damp-related issues.

Is a Damp Survey Required?
When it comes to specific issues, you may not want to schedule a damp survey right away. In fact, for condensation problems or mould, there are some do-it-yourself solutions worth a try. Improving your home's ventilation, for example, could be a game changer. Simply reducing excess moisture caused by daily living could be the key to control troublesome black mould.
But let's face it, not everyone is a DIY pro. If you're unsure about the nuances of the situation, a damp survey might be worth it, and it would be a good idea to consult our damp surveyors and organize a proper survey. Our specialist surveyors bring a wealth of knowledge and can offer expert advice and offer solutions too. In contrast, relying on someone less experienced may result in a misdiagnosis, which is not a risk you want to take.
Consider a scenario in which you're susceptible to a condensation problem that defies your DIY skills or you're dealing with damp proofing, woodworm, or structural issues. The peace of mind that comes with consulting professional damp surveyors like us is well worth considering in these situations. We are the ones who can keep your home in top condition.

What to Expect from Damp Surveyors Ltd.?
When you schedule a survey with our company, you can be confident that our local and qualified damp surveyor will arrive on time. Beginning with an exterior inspection, our specialist surveyor thoroughly examines critical elements such as the roof, brickwork, paint on walls, cracks in certain areas, existing damp-proof course, high ground levels, and other potential damp issues.
During the internal assessment, our surveyor uses a variety and combination of tools to measure critical internal readings such as humidity, temperature, and dew point. We conduct moisture profile readings on interior wall surfaces with a moisture meter for diagnosis and evidentiary support in the report, assisting in the evaluation of rising damp, or penetrating damp and moisture levels in timber.
We identify cold spots and cold bridging by incorporating a thermal imaging camera into the survey process, revealing temperature differences on surfaces. This invaluable tool aids in the understanding of condensation and mould accumulation by providing insights into the underlying causes.
Aside from damp concerns, our surveyor diligently searches for additional issues such as dry rot, wet rot, a woodworm problem, or structural problems that may necessitate attention. The surveyor creates a detailed report based on these comprehensive findings, complete with diagrams and images to support observations.
This report not only describes the scope and scale of preservation and restoration issues but also suggests a treatment plan if one is required. Whether the solution is simple or complex, our commitment remains unwavering: we provide you with a detailed record of our surveyor's observations.
In cases where more extensive interventions are required, such as plastering or joinery, the report provides a detailed breakdown of the steps necessary to restore your property to optimal condition and prevent the issue from recurring.
Our special damp treatment recommendations are backed by guarantees, giving you assurance as we work to protect your property from damp-related issues. Choose us for a thorough survey and a comprehensive plan to address any damp patches or problems, ensuring that your property remains in excellent condition for years to come.
