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.

 
If you are able to email a detailed description of the problem you are experiencing, along with photographs of the affected areas and any reports you may have already received, we will advise if we are able to help remotely
and if so, our fee for doing this.

 

 

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"

 

 

 

 

 

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.



 

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.
