Once a certain amount of moisture penetrates timber it will start to rot. Timber rot can cause the wood to dry, crack, weaken and often disintegrate causing serious structural damage.

Non-destructive testing of timber which enables accurate detection of hidden timber defects. A thin needle like drill bit is driven into the timber, the resistance is measured, recorded and printed, an evidential graph is produced.

Many mortgage lenders require a pre-purchase damp and timber survey and that this survey must be carried out by a Property Care Association (PCA) member.  PM Surveyor is a member of the PCA.

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.
