Independent Single Damp/Timber Defect Report from £60

Just concerned about one building defect or problem?
Damp Consultants - Timber Surveyor Blackburn

As the name suggests this is an independent inspection of a single defect specified by yourself. This might be a defect identified in a Homebuyer Report or Building Survey that a purchaser requires more information about but more commonly our clients already own their buildings and need a defect report to give guidance and information regarding a defect that they have identified.

A typical Home Buyers’ Survey will usually take up to 1 hour +. We’ll happily address and answer any concerns or questions you have during the survey. If you need a damp proofing specialist in Lancashire, feel free to contact us.

The typical surveys cover all aspects of the interior of the property and also an evaluation of the exterior of the building itself including roofing, rainwater goods and any other building defect issues related to this single defect.

And all the results are presented in a detailed written report.

At Damp Consultants – damp proofing specialist in Manchester, we can tailor single defect reports to your requirements – for instance, some clients are looking for a report to send to their insurance company or a loss adjuster, some to their landlords and some just seek peace of mind. In most cases, it is best to call Damp Consultants and speak with one of our surveyors who can discuss your requirements and the nature of the defect you need inspecting. We can then give you a quotation for the works required.
