Is damp a problem on your property that needs a survey or plastering/decorating?

Flaking plaster, blown plaster, cement render falling away, paint bubbling and flaking off walls. Wallpaper that shows sign of mold. Condensation around windows and corners of rooms, cold walls, mold in bathrooms etc.
We can help. You do not have Rising Damp. These words are a myth. We have a sensible solution. Firstly no injections nor chemicals we do not believe in this method. Misdiagnosis of damp problems is just a way of selling thousands of pounds of damp proofing plaster. This will only stop the damp in one particular area of your property.
You have to investigate the reason “why” your property has a damp issue and stop the problem first or it will just return to a new area.
We carry out a full survey (not just a couple of hours) which will take as long as it takes to find the source of your properties damp.

Builders Hampshire Survey

The survey is a 12 – 20 page document that you can use with any builder, buildering society or bank of your choice.
We find the damp problem first by investigating your property, this could include taking humidity readings, inferred imaging, plaster supply testing for moisture, lifting of floorboards, loft inspection, water tank check, lifting of main holes, drain tests, roof and gutter tests, down pipes, chimney stack, the list goes on and on. Until we find the reason the property has a damp issue.
We then can produce the survey report for you with a no obligation. Then provide you a plan to move forward. For example, we use an air circulating pump and vents to reduce condensation resulting in a breathable property. Crafting our experience of traditional materials and methods we can return your property back to a breathable, warm and cozy home without the use of any chemicals.
