Damp Survey Specialist in Berkshire
A damp survey is a careful inspection of a property to identify and assess any signs of damp. Damp can cause serious damage to a property, so it’s important to identify and address any problems as soon as possible.
Damp surveys are especially important for people who live in older properties, as they are more likely to have problems with damp. However, damp can also occur in new build properties, so don’t assume that your property is immune from damp issues.
Damp can be caused by a wide range of issues, including leaks, condensation and poor ventilation. Once we have identified the source of the damp, we can take steps to put this right.
If you’re concerned about damp in your property, please get in touch. We offer a free, no-obligation damp survey so that we can assess the problem and advise you on the best course of action.
Managing damp in Berkshire properties
Berkshire is a county in the south of England, with a population of over 800,000. The county town is Reading, and other major towns include Maidenhead, Slough and Bracknell. Berkshire is home to a number of historic buildings, including Windsor Castle, the oldest occupied castle in the world.
Damp can cause serious damage to historic buildings, but it’s also an issue in new-build properties. The United Kingdom experiences a high level of rainfall and high humidity, which can make properties more susceptible to damp. Damp can cause problems such as rot, mould and mildew, so it’s important to address any issues as soon as possible.
Damp surveys in Berkshire
A damp survey is the best way to assess the extent of any damp problems in your property. We will carry out a thorough inspection of your property, looking for any signs of damp. We will also assess the cause of the damp and advise you on the best course of action.
The first step in a damp survey is to use thermal imaging and moisture metres to identify any areas of damp. We will then carry out a physical inspection of these areas, looking for any signs of mould or mildew. We will also look for any structural damage that may have been caused by the damp.
Next, we produce a comprehensive report detailing our findings and outlining the best course of action to take. This may involve carrying out repairs, installing a damp-proof course, or installing a new ventilation system.
It is important to carry out a damp survey as soon as you suspect there may be a problem. Damp can cause serious damage to your property, so it is important to act quickly. We can also get involved alongside architects and builders during renovations and extensions, as this will minimise the risk of damp problems in the future.
