Damp and Timber Surveys 

We are able to offer damp surveys in Bedford

and the surrounding areas.


As a practicing Chartered Building Surveyor the founder of

Phillips & Co recognised a basic flaw in the

property purchase and damp survey market in general.


Damp in one shape or form is probably the most common

defect found within property and there are relatively few Chartered Surveyors specialising in this area.


Unfortunately on top of this, within the scope of a Mortgage Valuation, Homebuyers Report or Full Structural or Building Survey the surveyor may not have either the experience or expertise but more commonly the time or specialist equipment to undertake a thorough investigation into the causes of an apparent damp problem within a property.


As a consequence of this the report produced often makes the reader aware of high moisture levels having been recorded and recommends a further investigation by a "Damp Specialist"





Phillips & Co are not contractors or sales reps, we are an

Independent firm of Chartered Surveyors and

members of the Property Care Association.


We will undertake a thorough investigation of the property

but we will charge a fee for this service.


We are happy to recommend trusted tradesmen to undertake any remedial works identified such as re-pointing brickwork, removing render, lowering external ground levels, improving ventilation, plumbing repairs etc and we also offer a project management service if required.
