Maybe you are considering buying a property in Virginia Water and a survey has been requested by your lender. It is important to protect your investment and feel confident that the property does not have any damp and timber defects and, remember, that even if such defects were to be found it may be possible to negotiate a reduction to cover the costs.
Tapco HomeDry’s qualified timber and damp surveyor will, where possible, expose and inspect the roof timbers, flooring timber and joinery, possibly by lifting short ends of floor boards to report on any timber defects. He will then take moisture readings to the wall surfaces, using a calibrated moisture meter, to measure the level of moisture in the wall and report on any remedial damp proofing that may be required. An external inspection will also be carried out to check the general condition of the property, including the roof coverings, rain water goods, external rendering, brick pointing and all other items that may cause internal damp. Any treatment carried out by us at your property will be carried out by our highly trained and skilled technicians and covered by our long term guarantee which can be protected by Guarantee Protection Insurance for further peace of mind.
