Damp & Timber Survey

Specialist property survey often required when buying or selling property

A common request during the sale of a property by Mortgage Lenders and Buildings surveyors is for a specialist Damp & Timber Report to be completed to asses the structure of the building and determine the level of moisture present.

These reports are most common during the sale of older properties but can also be carried out in more modern properties where signs of moisture or woodworm are present.

B&W are able to carry out professional surveys that give new homeowners and lenders peace of mind that there are not underlying problems that could affect the property's value or indicate that significant work is required in the near future.

B&W damp and timber surveys include:

  • Identify any potential defects that may lead to damp issues or timber infestations
  • Inspection of the damp proof course to determine it's type, current condition and suitability
  • Survey the ground levels around the property that could lead to water ingress
  • Inspect floors sub floor, internal and external walls and structural timbers for signs of fungal decay or infestation
  • Complete a full written report with diagnosis, recommendations for remedial work and estimate for completion
