Damp & Timber Surveys

A damp and timber survey is usually associated with the buying and selling of a property, or when a property owner has conflicting opinions from other damp and timber specialists.

We provide damp and timber surveys by a qualified CSRT surveyor that correctly diagnoses any form of damp ingress and or timber decay/infestations.

If you have been instructed to have a specialist damp and timber survey carried out when buying a property it usually means you have already committed yourself financial, whether its survey fees and or solicitors fees, there is a lot at stake financial regarding the findings of the damp and timber survey.

A misdiagnosis can result in mortgage retentions and in some cases refusal of lending. So it is very important to use a qualified CSRT surveyor to carry out the damp and timber survey.

Our main objective is to pass your property with a clean bill of health, however in some cases there are problems. To what extent though? That is the question!

Chemical damp proof course installations or fungicide/insecticide treatment are expensive and sometimes not even necessary! There are times when internal or external bridging gives the façade of rising damp. Which in most cases require no treatment apart from de-bridging and allowing the wall to dry out naturally.

Whether it is a misdiagnosis of rising damp or a case of active rising damp, rest assured the diagnoses will be the correct one.

A common error within the damp proofing and timber decay industry is the misdiagnoses of wood boring insect attack e.g. woodworm infestation. There are many species of wood boring insects that come under the universal umbrella term of “woodworm” that require completely different treatments if any treatment at all.

There are three questions that you should ask yourself which are…
> Does the beetle require treatment?
> Is the infestation Active or Historic?
> Is there a chemical free treatment to avoid costly insecticide treatments?

90% of the time the infestation will be historic or requires no treatment at all. However, in the event of active wood boring beetle attack, simple chemical free solutions can usually eradicate the infestation.
