Timber & Damp Surveys
Structural dampness is the presence of unwanted moisture in the structure of a building, either the result of intrusion from outside or condensation from within the structure.
A high proportion of damp problems in buildings are caused by condensation, rain penetration or rising damp. Dampness tends to cause secondary damage to a building. The unwanted moisture enables the growth of various fungi in wood, causing rot or mould health issues and may eventually lead to sick building syndrome. Plaster and paint deteriorate and wallpaper loosens. Stains, from the water, salts and from mould, mar surfaces.
These specialist surveys are usually required or specified by a mortgage lender, or building surveyor on behalf of a lender.
This type of report will highlight any building defects or problems that exist, or are likely to occur due to present conditions.
