Damp investigation survey.
“Very professional and excellent in depth explanation of damp problem. We also received guidance on what to look out for with remedial work. We would recommend Alpine Surveys to friends and family.”
Damp survey prior to purchase of property.
“The Engineer Mark was great as was Sarah prior to the appointment. She answered all of my questions prior to the survey and was very friendly and polite. On the day Mark was great, he's like the 'house whisperer'! We are in the process of buying a house and wanted to find out what was causing the damp. We had another company come around and say they could inject to stop the rising damp. Mark showed us that we in fact did not have rising damp but penetrating damp. He has potentially saved us thousands and hopefully helped us to negotiate some money off the purchase too.”
Damp assessment for the whole house.
“A job very well done. During the whole assessment process I was kept informed of the findings and the guys were great at explaining what they were doing. Following the assessment the report was delivery very promptly and was very detailed and clearly laid out what they believed the steps to be taken to resolve the damp issue.”
Identification of source of external damp problem and remedy
“The surveyor arrived on time. He explained the nature of the problem supported by thermal imagery, and explained in layman's terms the work required. He advised us that we should decline more extensive and unnecessary work that may be offered by contractors, which was very welcome and helpful. Time will tell whether the advice was good.”
Homebuyers survey + damp investigation.
“Through recommendation, I was aware of the excellent feedback and positive comments Alpine Surveys Ltd had received regarding their professional, friendly and expert services. This influenced my decision greatly and I was not disappointed. Mark Dobson carried out the survey using a variety of specialist and sophisticated equipment and together with his knowledge and experience, produced a valuable, clear report with accompanying evidence and images. This information enabled me to negotiate further on my property purchase, with confidence. I recommend using Alpine Surveys.”
Alpine Damp are an independent surveying company, with absolutely no connections to any damp proofing company, and therefore have no interest in financial rewards from remedial works.
We aim to provide you with a totally unbiased survey, in order that you have a true understanding of the issues that you may have. Unfortunately there are many companies that will provide a “Free Survey” with the hope of selling expensive remedial works at the end of the survey sometimes costing many thousands of pounds, and on many occasions, they are not required.
With the correct survey and diagnosis, in many situations the rectification is non expensive, and does not require expensive Damp Proof Courses to be installed, or expensive surfaces. The key is to be thorough in the survey approach, and locate the actual issue, as opposed to assuming that it is something else, normally misdiagnosed as Rising Damp.READ MORE
