However, there are many different sources of dampness in buildings. They have different causes and require very different remedies. In some cases, several sources combine to cause problems. Contractors who apply a ‘one size fits all’ approach to corrective treatments are to be avoided. What is needed is a contractor or surveyor who understand how dampness can arrive in buildings and can give an accurate diagnosis of the source of dampness before an appropriate repair can be recommended.
All our reports are prepared by specialists registered with a propfessional body such as the Property Care Association (PCA) and will assess all damp and timber issues in the property.
