About PM Independent Surveyors - Damp Surveyor in Bedford, MK41 7RR

Based in Bedfordshire I cover the entire south east of England, The east of England and also the midlands.
I am an experienced and independent surveyor specialising in diagnosing damp and timber defects. I provide detailed and easy to understand survey reports which include the evdeince from the inspection and remedial reccomendations.

I am not a contractor, I do not have any links to contractors. I do not undertake any remedial works. All my investigations/surveys and reports are completely impartial and independent.

Many damp contractors offer free or reduced surveys; but it must be remembered that they are also trying to sell you work so are not necessarily offering impartial and independent advice. With PM Independent Surveyor* you can have peace of mind in knowing that you will receive an honest and independent report. My report will advise you on estimated costs and give sound professional advice on the works that will be incurred, in the form of reccomednations within the report.

I am fully experienced in the diagnosis and recommendations needed to ensure that the correct remedial treatments are carried out.

To meet this criteria, PM Independent Surveyor is:

  • CSRT Qualified
  • CSSW Qualified
  • Fully Insured
  • Property Care Association (PCA) Member
  • Associate Member of the Expert Witness Institute

I specialise in surveying the following:

  • Damp
  • Timber Rot
  • Woodworm Infestation
  • Mould
  • Ventilation
  • Condensation
  • Waterproofing
  • Structual waterproofing and BS 8102 guidlines

Pre Purchase Damp Surveys:
When buying a property the general building surveyor will often advise the buyer that a damp and timber specialist investigates the property to ascertain its condition after he has picked up high readings of moisture, or areas of concern within the property. When this happens, a specialist damp and timber surveyor will then come and inspect the property and conduct a more thorough detailed inspection. Often, during these inspections we have found that many of the buildings we inspect do not require any remedial work. The general building surveyor has simply recorded high readings of moisture on his moisture metre, but that does not mean to say that there requires to be any remedial works carried out. The moisture metre is a very good tool used by many surveyors, including ourselves. However, the surveyor’s knowledge and experience in the damp and timber preservation industry is also paramount.

This is what I specialise in and my reports are often used by mortgage lenders to get an overall picture of what work is required, how extensive and what the likely cost is going to incur.

As an independent surveyor, you can always rest assured that my reports are completely impartial and we will not be stating that work should be carried out when it is not necessary.

    "Really helpful and great advice on a property we are purchasing. Initial advice from a non-specialist said we needed to spend up to £15k damp proofing our house. Now with Peter's advice we know the damp issue in much more localised, coming from the bathroom, so the cost and effort to fix is going to be significantly lower. The report we got was super detailed, lots of pictures, and great explanations. Thank you Peter!"

    "Peter was very helpful and informative with the work to be carried out. The recommendation on work to be done along with meter readings and findings were professionally presented in the report and was all arranged in a timely manner at an affordable price. Will recommend for anyone wishing to have a damp/water damage inspection."

    "Peter's work was exemplary. He arrived early, was very personable, very knowledgable & helpful. Did not mind explaining the problems he found and was not in a rush to go to another appointment. Peter is old school. There are not many of Peters calibre around these days."

    "Well happy with the advice/reassurance given on the day & the report that followed, my main concern was condensation in the roof space, which followed the installation of cavity & additional loft installation approx 10 years ago but only picked up recently. Peter inspected all the rooms, the loft & externals, explained what he was doing, answered any of my questions. I have already implemented the DIY element of the report & inserted the felt lap vents, the condensation problem has gone, that was £20 plus approx 40mins of my own time to clamber between the trussed rafters, as opposed to £6K for a roof treatment proposed by a company selling their product. Will look for tradesmen to undertake the other items to improve ventilation within the wet rooms, bedrooms, clean & reseal the water storage tank in the New Year."
