Frequently Asked Questions: Damp Surveys Posted: 02nd September,2021
Do you have a question about a damp survey that you want answered before booking a survey? Below, we have answered some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to an independent damp survey!
What equipment do the surveyors use?
All of our surveyors use the latest equipment ranging from the Flir E60 BX and the Flir E54 which are top of the range thermal imaging cameras. They also use telescopic ladders and camera extension poles so they can gather as much information as possible from all areas of the property.
How long does a survey take?
The length of a survey is very much dependent on the surveyors findings and the size of the property, for example if the surveyor is only assessing a lounge and a kitchen it should take anywhere between one hour and one and a half, however, if it is a 4 bedroom house it could be anywhere between two to four hours.
What areas do you cover?
We have offices in Uxbridge, Fareham, Dorset, Exeter, Bristol and Worcester. We cover all of the listed areas and surrounding areas.
Do you undertake the works?
As we are an independent company we do not work in conjunction with anyone, including builders, therefore we do not undertake the remedial works, but do list the specific works needed in the standard comprehensive report.
Will I get a report afterwards?
After every single survey that we conduct here at Alpine Surveys, within 48 hours will receive an indepth and detailed report explaining all of our sueveyors findings and a list of recommendations for the rectification works. You can find an example report here: https://www.alpinedamp.co.uk/uploads/Client.pdf
How much does a damp survey cost?
The cost of a damp survey varies depending on the size of the property and how many rooms need to be surveyed. Here at Alpine Surveys, we have pricing structures based on a single room right through to a full house survey.
