Rocksure Damp Proofing are happy to arrange a damp proofing survey and produce a damp and timber report for all of our clients.
With any building problem it is imperative to correctly identify the nature of the defect before deciding the best treatment. We deal with all damp problems arising from dampness in ageing houses. We also treat woodworm and wood rot.
Damp And Timber Report
A damp and timber report is prepared with a quotation itemising all damp or timber problems including recommendations and costs for any specialist treatments. This will also list any work required to be carried out by other parties or preparations that may be necessary before we can start. If we find the cause of the damp problem is structural we will advise you of the correct course of action.
This is a basic damp survey / inspection carried out at a mutually agreed time. Our damp and timber report will be produced for you within a maximum of 7 day. Clients can call or e-mail us to discuss the damp survey / inspection once they have received their damp and timber report.

Any visual evidence of timber decay will be reported on.
