About

Fully booked until December.....

I'm an independent surveyor, RICS qualified Expert Witness and Damp and Timber surveyor through PCA + ISSE and SPAB.....

The survey takes about 90 minutes - the fee is fixed at £300 for a standard damp survey.

Homebuyer reports take about 2 days, other reports take about 7 days.....

We offer Rising damp guarantees, that is a full service with report and repayment of the fee if we find rising damp.

Rising damp is from groundwater. Groundwater is pumped out below the height of the tube line - therefore it is virtually impossible in London.

It is misdiagnosed as:
1. vested interest from rising damp contractors,
2. it can be very hard 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 had been concerned for some time about the presence of mold at floor level and apparent damp patches on the ceiling suggesting either leaking roof or penetrating damp. The survey was thorough and accompanied by full explanation of the findings and origins of the problems. Various solutions presented varying from simply opening windows to installing electric fans in previously unknown cavities within the building and various ways of monitoring the situation. Reassuring and competent.

Simon and his team went above and beyond. They were super kind, courteous and helpful even before the appointment and this continued to an even higher standard for the visit and subsequent report. He was highly knowledgeable, and practical suggesting cost-effective and straight forward solutions to resolve the issues to the satisfaction of me and my neighbours. In this day and age is it is truly rare to receive such good service.

I was very pleased with the work undertaken by Simon. He was very thorough, took time to inspect the property and provided a detailed report with clear recommendations. Simon explained clearly what he was doing and his findings. The work was completed quickly and to the agreed cost. I also appreciated the independent viewpoint that you might not get from a builder. I strongly recommend.

I live in a converted building with 4 other leaseholders. One of the flats has had ongoing damp issues. Using a damp solutions business diagnosis of rising damp, the freeholder had previously signed off, and was continuing to recommend, very expensive damp course treatments. This was affecting all flats adversely from a financial point fo view. As leaseholders, we had some concerns about the costs and plans which were furthered by research on the subject. Eventually this led us to Simon and Damp Surveys. Simon performed a forensic survey of the flat in question. His commitment to work and follow up questions was second to none. Rising damp was immediately ruled out (we are in London) and upon delivering the survey, we had a very clear set of actions to address the issues. This did not include very expensive damp course treatments that would have been ineffective anyway. Had we used Simon's service originally, we would have saved well over £15k. We have managed to save £10k anyway. If you have damp issues, before you go anywhere near a damp solutions company, speak to Simon. You will save money. You will have a far more specific set of solutions that will fix your issues correctly, rather than misdiagnosing them.

Simon was very polite and competent, and gave a thorough report on all areas of the house that we had damp problems with. He even did a bit of handiwork fixing broken extractor fans, so went beyond the call of duty for a damp report! Report came back within a few days and covered all our options to fix the problems. Took all sensible precautions against spreading COVID

Simon arrived promptly and observed appropriate covid precautions. The survey was thorough, and Simon clearly and simply answered all my queries regarding the science underlying the many and varied damp issues from which my cottage suffers. Specialist equipment was used to photograph & record water content, temperatures and relative humidity in normally inaccessible places (eg high roof area, under floorboards, within plaster). The 21 page written survey arrived in less than one week, and was extremely detailed and clear, with photographs and meter readings. It also gave numerous links to useful non- commercial websites for further information. Suggestions for solutions to the problems recorded were made. Simon was at all times helpful and professional, and I can warmly recommend him and his company to everyone.

Simon conducted a thorough inspection of the property, looking at all possible sources of damp inside and out. He explained what was causing the problems (excess humidity caused by insufficient ventilation) and supplied clear and helpful recommendations in his report. Simon took time to answer my questions, conducted his investigations in a careful manner and remained courteous and polite at all times. As a result, I feel much better-informed and confident about the 'next steps'. Thanks, Simon.
