PM Independent Surveyors I am an experienced independent surveyor specialising in diagnosing damp and timber defects. I provide detailed easy to understand survey reports for homeowners, tenants, estate agents, landlords and pre-purchase. Dampness comes in many forms and if left untreated can become a major problem in the home or workplace. As a trained expert I will give you a comprehensive analysis of the problem and advise you on the best options available.

Once a certain amount of moisture penetrates timber it will start to rot. Timber rot can cause the wood to dry, crack, weaken and often disintegrate causing serious structural damage. Non-destructive testing of timber which enables accurate detection of hidden timber defects. A thin needle like drill bit is driven into the timber, the resistance is measured, recorded and printed, an evidential graph is produced.

In situ humidity moisture testing for concrete floor slabs, meeting the British standards BS 5325 and BS 8203. As a waterproofing specialist I can advise on all aspects of; Structural Waterproofing, Cavity Drainage, Tanking, BS 8102 Waterproofing Regulations.

Normally one visit is made as part of the investigation, however depending on the size and complexity of the structure several visits may be required. The British Standard gives recommendations and provides guidance on methods dealing with and preventing entry of water from surrounding ground into a structure below ground level.

When a mortgage lender requires this, they always state that the survey must be carried out by a Property Care Association (PCA) member. I am a member of the PCA. When buying a property the general building surveyor will often advise the buyer that a damp and timber specialist investigates the property to ascertain its condition after he has picked up high readings of moisture, or areas of concern within the property.
