About Damp Surveys Ltd - Damp Proofing in London, SE26 6RF

I've created the first self diagnosis Damp & Timber identifier;
https://surveyor.tips/damp-and-timber-trustatrader completely FREE to use, but please tell me if it worked for you and how much it saved you.

I am an experienced independent damp surveyor, qualified as an Expert Witness with RICS and Damp and Timber Surveyor with the PCA. I charge a fixed fee of £250.

Genuine rising damp is virtually impossible in London. Normally rainwater, mains leaks or condensation is mistaken for Rising Damp.

The problem with treating for Rising Damp, when water comes from another source, is the dampness will return accompanied by a risk of Dry rot.

Up to 1.5hours is spent at a property, sometimes returning to see the neighbour's side, with multiple devices, techniques and chemical analysis to track moisture to its root cause. Time permitting I can fix many damp issues during the survey, for no additional cost. I follow up after about a week with a detailed report, with additional recommendations (it can be brought forward if urgent, such as for buyers).

There is so much demand for this root cause approach, that I am building online tips, so that much of the initial testing can be performed, free before committing to a survey. This will allow focus on the properties where my experience can be of greatest benefit.

As of 1st October '19, I am offering a money back guarantee for 12 Months, in exchange for reviews, stating how much I saved.

When calling, please mention, Trustatrader, nature of damp, whether you have had a quote for Rising Damp or Dry rot treatment and location.

    "We recently used Simon for a pre-purchase damp survey. He was extremely friendly and his report was very helpful indeed - clear and with practical advice on things we could do to reduce damp areas for free. I would wholeheartedly recommend him."
