Benefit from a Professional Damp Proof Survey
Damp related issues aren’t always immediately apparent, especially if they occur in the areas of your property that you don’t frequently visit such as a basement or roof void. Issues arise when these untreated instances of damp become so severe that they begin to have a serious impact and compromise the safety and integrity of your property. As an experienced damp proofing company, the first thing we provide for customers who require our services is a comprehensive damp survey which is designed to check every aspect of your property for the presence of damp and water ingress. Damp proofing your property is especially relevant if you plan to sell your house in the near future. The buyer’s surveyor will certainly spot any signs of damp leaving you with a reduced fee or even no sale at all. Our Dudley damp proof survey can help you overcome this potential issue and perhaps even correct seemingly minor issues before they become major issues. Whether you require a pre-purchase report for the purchase of a new property or a survey for a property you already own, contact us today to arrange your damp proof survey.
Damp Testing & Detailed Report
Our surveyors do a complete damp testing and thereafter present reports with our in-depth assessment, recommendations and the cost calculations of any necessary repairs. The reports also include high-resolution pictures and detailed specifications along with category damage ratings to make the findings clear and easy to understand.
Providing a Detailed Damp Report
Our surveyors comprehensively inspect every aspect of your property using a variety of tools at our disposal. We possess the latest technology in damp detection including advanced damp meters which can quickly and accurately calculate the moisture content present within any surface. Once our survey is complete, you will be presented with a detailed report that includes a series of high resolution photographs to help you visualise our findings. Our damp survey reports also include cost estimates for the rectification of any issues we find, providing you with a complete picture of the health of your property. It should also be noted, that long term exposure to damp can affect the health of the occupants. A sore throat, skin rashes, respiratory diseases and the exacerbation of asthma have all been documented in relation to continued habitation of properties with damp issues. This should be enough reason to call us, particularly if there are children living in the property or people with existing conditions which could be worsened by living and sleeping in a damp environment.
