If you are considering buying or selling a property or simply concerned about dampness, woodworm or timber decay we recommend a damp and timber survey by one of our qualified surveyors. Our surveys are carried out in accordance with British Standard (BS6576:2005) and PCA Codes of Practice meeting the requirements of building societies, banks and local authorities. Our surveys are non-invasive so do not cause disruption to the property. Reports and quotations are e-mailed to reduce turnaround time.
Before considering the appropriate remedial work, it needs to be established if the fungal attack is dry rot or is it wet rot? Is the woodworm active or not? And is the dampness really rising damp or could it be condensation? We make a charge for our surveys and reports but you should consider a good survey can save you pounds and provides a sound basis for deciding on appropriate remedial work.
