Tapco HomeDry has been continuously trading for four and a half decades and we have carried out many pre-purchase timber and damp surveys on properties in and around Oxfordshire. If you are considering buying a property you may have been advised by your surveyor or lender to obtain a damp or timber survey, or both. This is because a potential problem may have been found, for example, a damp wall, springy floor or even evidence of wood boring insects (Woodworm) or the dreaded Dry Rot Fungus (Serpula lacrymans).
