What to expect


Our survey is designed with you in mind. Jargon free, it clearly highlights any problems and potential ones; providing you with a clear way forward for remediation. Where repairs to the fabric are considered appropriate, our philosophy is to use minimal intervention and to retain as much of the existing fabric as is possible.


As one of only a select few of independent damp surveyors carrying out surveys to guidelines set out by British Standards, and in accordance with the principles laid out by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, you can be assured that our reports are totally unbiased and offer independent advice upon which you can base an informed decision.


With over 20 years experience in property surveying and specialist remedial works, we have undertaken surveys in properties as diverse as medieval timber framed buildings through to modern flats. This experience provides us with enviable insight to ensure we deliver a holistic approach that is proven, results oriented and cost effective.
