About

Book https://dampsurveys.com/booking-request/
See example complex report on booking form.

Cost of surveys is fixed. For guidance it's roughly 40% of fee charged by good London RICS surveyor.

We damp proof by identifying the root cause of damp

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 dampness for a while. However there is a risk of ROT or MOULD.

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/

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.

I would recommend Simon at Damp Surveys to everyone. I wish I had instructed him previously. Cheerful, interested, clear recommendations and easy to follow report. So refreshing to have someone who turns up and writes so that lay parties can understand. Can’t recommend him enough.

I booked my visit in advance and it was delayed due to Covid, however it was worth the wait. Simon arrived on time and followed distancing guidelines. There was no rush to the visit, Simon took time to look at the areas I was concerned about and confirmed that I didn’t actually need the work that I had been advised to do, it was peace of mind that the survey was independent and no intention of gaining work out of the findings, just honest and accurate information. It was worth every penny to have this survey done and I would 100% recommend Simon.

We had been having numerous damp problems at a rental property and wanted to discover the root of the problems in order to address them so we booked a report with Damp Surveys Ltd, We were staggered at the level of detail in Simon’s report, which left no stone unturned. Simon was a delight to deal with and we found the cost surprisingly reasonable, particularly once we received the very lengthy report with numerous photos and suggestions. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Simon to anyone considering looking for expert advice on all damp issues.

Simon was very professional, arrived promptly and observed appropriate Covid precautions. He was very efficient and a pleasure to deal with. He was very thorough and took his time inspecting the property and provided a detailed report with clear recommendations. Specialist equipment was used to photograph and record water content, temperature and relative humidity in the house. He even left me a little gadget to monitor the humidity levels over a two month period. His report gave a full explanation of the findings and origins of the problem which was excess humidity caused by insufficient ventilation. I also appreciated his independent viewpoint that you probably wouldn’t get from Builder. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.
