Do you have a question about a damp survey that you want answered before booking a survey? The answers below may well help but if you still have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.

 

FAQ’S:

 

What equipment do the surveyors use to conduct a damp survey?

All of our surveyors use the latest damp surveying 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 damp survey take?

The length of a damp 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 your damp surveyors cover? 

We cover Greater London and the South of England with specialist damp survey offices in Uxbridge, Fareham, Dorset, Exeter, Bristol and Worcester. We cover all of the listed areas and surrounding areas. 

 

Do you undertake the works after the damp survey has been carried out?

As we are specialist independent damp surveyors, we do not work in conjunction with contractors, or builders, therefore we do not undertake the remedial works, but do list the specific works needed in the standard comprehensive report. This makes us unique in the way that we offer an unbiased, honest and reliastic report as we have no financial gain from any remidal work conducted following the outcome of our findings

 

Will I get a damp survey report afterwards?

After every single damp or mould survey that we conduct here at Alpine Surveys, within 48 hours you'll receive an indepth and detailed report explaining all of our surveyors findings and a list of recommendations for the rectification works. 

 

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, however, rest assured our prices are very competitive and reflect the quality and professionalism of our surveyors
