Full Property Damp & Timber Survey/Report  (Including Pre- Purchase for Homebuyers) - Carried out by a Property Care Association (PCA) Member - CSRT - CSSW Qualified Surveyor

All our Damp & Timber Reports are undertaken by our Qualified Surveyor Paul. He is a Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatment (CSRT) and Certificated Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing (CSSW).


Damp & Timber reports are often required when purchasing a property by Lenders (Banks/Building Societies) when a valuer notes "Damp or timber decay may be present" - without a subsequent CSRT Remedial Survey Report they may not lend.


Our specialist Damp and Timber Survey will provide you with a full written report which will contain diagnosis of any issues regarding timber decay or damp ingress along with appropriate recommendations and specifications for the correct remedial measures to rectify the problem.


A full property Damp & Timber survey includes:


        Inspection for rising damp in ground floor walls.


        Inspection of walls for signs of penetrating damp.


        Inspection of accessible timber floors for rot (Fungal Decay) & wood boring insect infestation.


        Inspection of sub floor ventilation.


        Inspect the roof timbers for rot & wood boring insect infestation


        Comments on the condition of rainwater goods.


        Inspect the property for signs of any condensation issues.


        Inspect the cellar/ basement for signs of water ingress and lack of ventilation


        Pass comment on the general condition of the building - brickwork etc



All the above will form part of the report. If you have further instructions, we would require these before the survey is undertaken.


The survey will be of a non- destructive nature and will not include moving furniture /lifting and refitting carpets etc. The client should arrange for this to be undertaken prior to our arrival on site if required. (This applies mainly to when timber sub floor inspection is required).


If you require a survey, which includes investigations of a destructive nature, then please confirm this in writing. An additional fee may be required for such a survey and we will require written authority from the vendor.


External observations are from ground level (unless scaffolding has been provided) and therefore detailed inspection to roof coverings, chimney stacks and rainwater goods is restricted accordingly.


The report should be available within 2-3 working days. The report can be sent via email in a PDF file format or a hard copy can be sent through the post. (Or both if requested)


There are some companies offering free reports, but you should be aware that these tend to be carried out by non-qualified tradesmen.


 Please contact us for further details and the cost of the survey.
