What is Included in a Waterproofing Survey
A waterproofing survey is an internal examination of a space within your property. Other names that might be used include the basement waterproofing survey or the cellar survey. The report will include information on the waterproofing design and provide information on what basement waterproofing solutions might be needed to ensure no further water ingress.
The waterproofing survey will look for signs of dampness within the property, including moisture rising from the ground, damage to the cellar, and checking the walls for damp.
When the inspection has been completed, you'll be provided with a report that includes the risk factors, the potential problems identified in the survey, and the solutions to make the site safe.
Waterproofing Survey Cost
A waterproofing survey cost will depend on the complexity of the project and what basement waterproofing or waterproofing design is already used on the property. However, the cellar survey is a lot more cost-effective than the damage that can be caused by water entering the home and causing damage to the foundations and structure.
Depending on the location, the size, and more – you can expect the cost to be approximately £200 to £300.
What Happens After a Waterproofing Survey?
Once the waterproofing survey has been completed by one of our team, you will get a report with a list of recommendations on how you can improve the waterproofing systems in your basement.

How Long Does a Basement Waterproofing Survey Take?
A survey will take up some time. You will need to be present for it so the team can be sure our surveyors have access to all areas of the basement or cellar where you would like the inspection conducted. They might also offer a brief rundown on what they found on the structural waterproofing during their assessment.
Therefore, expect the survey to take between two to four hours, depending on the size of the property and the access to the required areas.
Who Carries Out the Survey?
Surveys are carried out by our professional surveyors, they’re experts in damp proofing and experienced in looking for the smallest detail. They can advise on the best solutions for future protection and repair to the basements or cellars as required.
The surveyor will look at all potential problems affecting homes, including an analysis of the lowest part of the cellar or basement to check where water ingress will move to.
If there are waterproofing systems in place, the surveyors will also inspect this, regardless of the waterproofing design, they will be able to check the system in the detail required to ensure it's working properly.
The inspection uses some specialist surveying equipment, which is designed to spot any potential water ingress in the property, and signs of damp and ensure that any damage to the waterproofing systems is picked up.
Can a Survey Be Free?
Surveys are not free. Surveys are carried out by professionals, with specialist equipment to identify potential issues with the home. Most free surveys do not go into depth and are not accepted by mortgage lenders when used in the pre-purchase surveys.
