I am an experienced independent surveyor specialising in diagnosing damp and timber defects. I provide detailed easy to understand survey reports for homeowners, tenants, estate agents, landlords and pre-purchase.
Dampness comes in many forms and if left untreated can become a major problem in the home or workplace. As a trained expert I will give you a comprehensive analysis of the problem and advise you on the best options available.
As a waterproofing specialist I can advise on all aspects of; Structural Waterproofing, Cavity Drainage, Tanking, BS 8102 Waterproofing Regulations. I also investigate existing waterproofing, which may have failed, to locate the source of the failure and suggest remedial action to remedy the failure.
Expert Witness and CPR Reports.
I am fully experienced and hold the qualifications to be an expert witness, if called upon by a solicitor or the courts, in a dispute between two parties. I am an associate member of the Expert Witness Institute. I am able to produce an expert report complying with Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR).
True rising dampness is not common but does exist and is often mis-diagnosed by contractors and surveyors. Due to mis-diagnoses of the cause of the defect the solutions can often be wrong and costly. Very often the remedy to solve the problem can be cheap and simple with no need to start causing any sort of destructive works to your property.
I have the experience to correctly diagnose and offer independent advice for the best possible remedy. I supply a fully written easy to understand survey report, with inserted photographs.
I specialise in the following:
Pre-purchase property damp and timber reports
Damp and timber survey reports inc specifications
Structural water proofing survey reports inc specifications
Wood rotting fungi and woodworm investigations
I am fully experienced in the diagnosis and recommendations needed to ensure that the correct remedial treatments are carried out
