Watch out for Unofficial Damp & Timber Advice

Damp Proofing and Timber Treatment Recommendations

Probably the most common report for older properties and the one that most worries the public. Most surveyors will recommend this report as soon as their moisture meter turns amber or red. In most cases it will be caused by bridging of the damp proof course where some cowboy building work has been carried out. Rising damp is relatively rare and not that difficult or expensive to remedy. If a patio is bridging the damp proof course it will be considerably more expensive.

To have a Professional Survey Report done and don’t be afraid to pay for the report as most of the more professional firms will make a charge. Timber problems such as dry rot or beetle attack will often be related to dampness combined with a lack of ventilation. Your report should recommend on how the conditions that caused the attack can be improved as well as the replacement of affected timbers.
