Building Surveys - Defect Analysis - Rising damp - Damp diagnosis
Does your home have a problem with dampness?
Has your builder carried out work that hasn't remedied the problem?
Have you had several different 'expert' opinions which are conflicting and simply sound wrong?
Do you have a vague, non-committal Home Report or one which recommends a damp specialist?
Do you think you have 'rising damp'?
Has your surveyor recommended chemical injection damp proofing?
If so, please read on.....
Do you need a practical survey report with advice that you can understand, trust and use?
Whatever the size of your property Heritage & Design can provide practical, easy to understand advice to improve it and save you unnecessary work.
You can email for practical advice via the 'Contact Us' page or do it the old fashioned way and call!
Fees are fixed and based on the time taken to survey and prepare the report and not, as most other survey companies, on the value of your property.
If you are looking for an easy to understand and comprehensive inspection of your damp problems or are concerned about rising damp, please call or email for unbiased advice.
We aim to provide you, the owners of old buildings, with the knowledge and ability to be able to look after your house properly.
Do NOT ask a 'damp specialist' or 'rot specialist' if you have rising damp as they are only interested in selling treatments and not providing good advice.
Their 'free survey' is simply a ruse - they get paid by identifying rising damp!
Ask Heritage & Design for truly independent, expert advice.
Do you think your house has rising damp? Let us inspect it and determine the true reason for the mould or dampness.
Old buildings (traditional or mass construction – stone of various types and properties or brick) account for a huge part of the UK's building stock. The majority of builders out there, most of whom are very capable and trustworthy, do not fully accept or understand the need to use the correct materials when working with traditional buildings. This is changing slowly but you can help that process by getting the right advice, understanding your building and by knowing what to ask for when looking for repairs to be carried out.
Please don't ask them anything about rising damp as you get what you ask for!
