Damp & Timber Surveys

Have you been told you have “damp” but not why?

Those who stop at the symptoms do not care about you or your house – they want to sell you their products and move on. They have absolutely no interest in fixing any defect for you, they mask the issues and hope you never have to claim their warranty or guarantee to repair it again.

JWSurveys Ltd carry out damp surveys on all types of properties from modern buildings

Defect Analysis & Building Pathology

Defects and failures occur through natural deterioration, lack of maintenance, architectural design and poor construction.

Building pathology is the study of building defects, building decay, and building performance in order to develop suitable remedial and management solutions.

The discipline looks at the interrelationships between the physical building, its use, occupation and

I would happily recommend JWSuveys for a building survey. Joe carried it out quickly, the report was sent fast and feedback on queries was prompt. The report was clear, written in plain English and thorough ( which is rarely the case!) with lots of information and recommendations on various aspects of the property. A very professional service. Highly recommended!

Joe from JWSurveys came to do an evaluation of our 200yr old farmhouse after we'd had some alarming survey reports whilst having it on the market for sale. He was very approachable, friendly and wonderfully sensible in evaluating the house and where it's problems were. We were able to embark on a renovation path which was removing 50+ years of works which had all been 'improvements' but were in fact detrimental to the fabric of the house and were in fact massively contributing to it's current problems. He has been very helpful in answering questions from our builders in the best way to go about solving some of our issues. We will save many thousands of pounds not doing unnecessary work and hopefully have a house to comfortably last another hundred years! Would definitely have no hesitation in recommending Joe and will use him again if ever required.

After literally months of searching for a competent surveyor to produce a damp report for our mortgage company, I found Joe Wilson at JWSurveys. The service they provided was first-class in every way — professional and very reasonably priced. If you are looking for a proper surveyor to perform a comprehensive damp survey, I would have no hesitation in recommending JWSurveys.

Thorough and detailed, but easy to understand, our report not only highlighted various defects in the property we were taking on, but was very reassuring in recommending how to deal with them. Just as impressive was the after-service: months after the survey was carried out, Joe is still fielding questions from both us and our builders on the best way to go about rectifying the problems he identified. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend JW Surveys. I was buying a period property in a poor state which the bank's surveyor recommended a 75% retention on the mortgage and instructed me to get a damp and timber survey. I didn't want a "free survey" from a damp proofing company as I thought I would end up with a recommendation for damp treatment works whether I needed them or not. So I chose to pay for a JW Survey. After the JW Surveys report the mortgage retention was reduced to 5%. The report was detailed clear and concise and has been extremely helpful in truly understanding the condition of the property. The advice has probably saved us tens of thousands of pounds and was worth every penny.

Having received a RICs survey report identifying potential 'rising damp', I reached out to JWSurveys for a more thorough investigation. Joe conducted the inspection in a timely manner, isolating his attention to the suspected damp issue at the property. The report was well-referenced and all findings were evidenced. Joe was also available to answer any questions I had and provide clarity on the findings and practical advice as to next steps. I would certainly recommend JWSurveys and wish I had used them from the outset.
