We specialise in surveying damp problems in older solid-walled or historic buildings where it is more common for there to be a failure of several elements rather than just one. This is usually the result of inconsistent maintenance or the wrong materials being used or poor quality repairs being made in the past.
After completing the exhaustive inspection, either a building survey or a timber and damp survey of your home, we will provide you with a detailed report written in laymen's terms advising on any defects, such as damp, that need to be addressed and the best course of action to take.
Although we are based in Swansea, we operate in many other areas in the UK including Cardiff and Bristol and towards London. We have a range of clients and believe that no project is too big or too small. So, if you have questions about dampness or want to arrange a survey, please contact us today by calling 07944611844 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether you are looking for answers via a
detailed defect or dampness survey of your home or an extremely comprehensive building survey, this is the only place to get the correct advice for the long-term benefit of your home.
Dampness or defect surveys start from as little as £395.00 plus return mileage and depend on the size of the property so the amount of time it will take to examine and compile a report of the issues.
Sometimes access can be difficult or issues numerous and complex so, if a survey runs on, the fee remains fixed as initially agreed.
The report is emailed when it is completed and the balance of the fee only payable when the hard copy of the report is received.
Heritage and Design Ltd offers specialist and detailed building surveys for home-owners, specifically for old or historic or listed buildings. The survey can take up to a full day to carry out, with the survey fee similar to that of a quick 'walk-in' survey provided by other surveying firms.
Great importance is placed on the use of plain English and, where technical or generally unfamiliar terms are used, an explanation is included. It's amusing to read some so-called technical reports from damp companies, aimed at the lay-person, which contain so many technical terms and Latin names - unnecessarily so.
A building survey report full of technical jargon doesn't help you, the owner, understand what's going on in your building. Overly-technical report writing and use of Latin just indicates insecurity by the writer and not ability or knowledge. My reports are, like me, simple and hopefully easily understood.
Being able to get across a technical point to a person with no technical ability is a true skill. I enjoy what I do but it would be pretty pointless if no-one could understand what I was on about.
