Damp and Timber Surveys
We generally offer damp surveys in Bedford and the surrounding villages but may be able to travel further if required, but our fees will obviously reflect this.
We understand we offer quite a unique service and often receive enquires from all over the UK, so we have started to offer a remote service.
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.

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"
THIS IS WHERE WE COME IN
Phillips & Co are not contractors or sales reps, we are an
Independent firm of Chartered Surveyors and
members of the Property Care Association.
