Damp Investigation

Damp and water penetration - along with related problems such as dry rot, mould, condensation and rising damp - can result long term in the structural deterioration of a property, and are the single most common cause of housing disrepair.

The associated health risks from long term exposure to damp and mould have given rise to a huge influx of personal injury claims in UK litigation, which we regularly provide evidence for in our Expert Witness services.

Residential homeowners concerned about possible water ingress also use our services to identify the cause(s) of damp at their property and provide guidance on remedial measures to prevent it and make good any damage caused.

Our damp investigation may involve the use of a Speedy meter and salts analysis testing, thermal camera imaging, and in some cases the services of a sub-contractor such as a drain or aerial roof photographer to establish the cause or extent of a damp problem.
