About

Time out until October to renovate a property damaged by the previous owner's inappropriate damp proofing treatment.

From October '22 book https://dampsurveys.com/booking-request/
See example report on form. Cost of surveys and report is £400. Phone answered 10AM to 12Midday.

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.

Simon has carried out two damp surveys for me. The first was for my property before I put it on the market - he took me round the property highlighting problematic areas with an impressive array of gadgets, and presented simple, inexpensive solutions both verbally and in a detailed report. When it came to the subsequent property purchase, I had no hesitation in instructing him again.

After the first survey on our house, we were quote an expensive damp proofing job. A few discussions with friends and internet searches later led us to believe that this may not be the only solution. Simon was then recommended to us by the company who helped us find our house, with whom we have a great relationship and whose opinion we trust and respect. They said that Simon simply looks at the heart of the damp and has no connection with contractors to do the work. After a few initial emails with Simon, he said it sounded like we had a normal damp condition and that it could be resolved during the visit at no extra cost. And so, when he came he properly investigated all the troublesome areas and helped us find the solution to the problem as he promised. Saving us a lot of money. He has even promised to come back in the summer and when we are doing our floorboards at no extra cost. We were truly blown away by how professional and helpful Simon was and would totally recommend anyone who has a damp problem to contact Simon first before doing any chemical damp proofing which appears to just mask the problem rather than get to the root.

Simon conducted an investigation into a damp problem as we wanted an independent investigation and report. I was very happy, he was very knowledgeable and gave good advice.

Simon carried out a full damp survey and found the problem to be condensation. The work was very thorough and he was a very good tradesman. I would highly recommend him.

Simon was contracted by me to undertake a damp survey of my property in SW4. His work was thorough and diligent and he went above and beyond in explaining everything to me in detail and fixing a few faulty appliances. His survey was sent across to me in good time and both the findings and recommendations were clearly laid out. I would recommend his services.
