We like to have an initial conversation with you by telephone to determine roughly what the nature of the problem is. Following that conversation we may conduct a site survey to carry out further investigation.
If we prepare a report and/or quotation then you can be assured that it will be compiled quickly and sent to you within 48 hours.
How Our Devon Damp Specialists Conduct A Damp Survey
The most important part of any damp proofing survey carried out by our Devon damp specialists is listening to what the customer says! If you have already had a quote from another company you may have found that they seemed to offer one solution to the damp problem regardless of your comments or budget.
We are different. We use our ears.
The one thing we have learnt through many years in this industry is that damp problems can be solved using a myriad of different methods. Naturally each method has pros and cons which will need to be discussed with you fully before you decide the solution that best suits your needs.
Devon Damp Proofing Specialists
Our damp specialists survey includes:
- External inspection to look for any building defects/faults which could be causing damp. These include broken gutters, defective mortar, cracked render or cracked stone.
- Areas of the building which are below ground will be identified.
- Any existing damp proof courses will be searched for and the quality of them assessed.
- Internal inspection of areas which are causing you or the occupants concern. Generally carried out using a Protimeter damp meter to find dampness present on the walls or the floor.
- Hygrometer readings, to measure water in the air, are routinely taken as too much water can lead to problems.
- Air flow readings will be taken from any extract fans fitted in the property.
