****We are booked until December. ****

Independent surveyor, RICS qualified Expert Witness and Damp and Timber surveyor through PCA + ISSE and SPAB.....Surveys take about 1 - 1.5hour.

Rising damp guarantee; full service with report and fee repayment if we find rising damp.

Rising damp is from groundwater. Groundwater is pumped out below tube lines - therefore virtually impossible in London.

Rising damp is misdiagnosed as:
1. vested interest from rising damp contractors,
2. it can be hard to identifying the root cause of damp,
3. applying slurry to treat rising damp hides damp for a while. However there is a risk of ROT or MOULD.

very helpful survey

Damp surveys have proved to be very organised, reliable and thorough. They did what they said they would do and I can see that in the long run it will save me both money and hassle, so I do recommend them if you have any damp problems. They might come up with a solution you hadn't thought about.

Simon undertook an extensive survey of damp in my lower ground floor flat. The situation proved to be more complex than he at first thought but he was able to analyse the multiple causes of the damp and make detailed recommendations for how to fix the issues including approximate likely cost of the various options. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon to anyone seeking to solve damp problems at source and for good rather than covering up issues only for them to reappear at a later date.

Good communication and professional expertise. They offered to go round the property the week later to check something, at no extra charge.

Highly recommended - the service throughout from Simon and the team was exceptional. Booking was easy and availability was prompt. Simon arrived on time and during his visit went above and beyond expectations, both in time spent in property and also in depth of investigation of all matters that could result in damp issues encountered - even the 1% possibilities! Post-visit Simon continued to go above and beyond, being extremely responsive in providing updates and answers to queries, and also providing actionable insights and remedial works in his final report, that I'm sure will save me considerable time and money over the coming years.

I would thoroughly recommend Damp Surveys Ltd. Simon was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, honest and personable. He found historical mistakes at our property which would never occurred had they known what he does and was great with recommendations for remedial measures.

Simon did as requested, a thorough review of the problem. It didn’t feel rushed and he wore a proper mask so we didn’t feel unsafe in the house. As desired, I now know what steps I need to take to mitigate the damp problem. I felt comfortable asking questions. I would recommend his services.

Thank you for your review. From the work completed date, I assume it was a recent survey where we saved £20,000 from inappropriate chemical damp proofing treatment, when the cause of damp was mains water leak, see https://dampsurveys.com/example_detailed_report/
Knowledgable and thorough, Saved us hundreds

Simon has a vast amount of knowledge and experience with damp issues. He thoroughly tested every room (and even under the ground floor!) for damp and provided sound advice for addressing the source of every issue. He saved us money by advising against certain “improvements” recommended by damp companies we’d had to the house, and provided simple and zero-cost solutions instead. If you only go the assessment of a self-interested damp company, you are at their mercy because you won’t know if the suggested improvement (for their profit) is actually necessary. After Simon conducted his survey, we found out that the damp company’s quote was for unnecessary work. He saved us hundreds.

Getting a damp survey done with Damp Surveys Ltd was fantastic and very professional. Simon and Jane were very accommodating and managed to fit in a survey on a property we were purchasing at short notice in amongst a very busy schedule. Simon's technical knowledge was invaluable to diagnosing the root cause of the damp. He took the time to explain the problem, respond to any follow up questions and included a full breakdown of the remedial actions necessary to keep the property dry and mould free, including an estimated cost which was incredibly helpful during negotiations with the seller. This breakdown was very comprehensive and not only included the more invasive, expensive actions required, but also minor and free actions that would help contribute to maintaining a damp-free property. I would 100% recommend to anyone concerned about damp in their property for an impartial, incredibly informed and very professional survey and report.

I would thoroughly recommend Simon for an independent survey of any potential damp problems. I had been considering whether I needed a damp proof course or other treatment due to extensive mould in my flat. Simon did a thorough survey and came up with practical and affordable recommendations. He pinpointed the problem as poor ventilation. He explained how and why mould manifested itself, using the data from a cheap hygrometer I got from amazon at his recommendation, prior to the survey. Using this and other tools meant he gave evidence based suggestions. This, plus his independence gave me confidence in the recommendations and as far as I can see, a much better experience that friends who had a person surveying and selling on a service. A comprehensive report delivered on time and a friendly and professional service - great value for money.
