Damp-proofing and timber treatment in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley
 
Specialist Surveys for Mortgages, Equity Release
 
Building Societies have tightened up on their criteria for lending during the recession/credit crunch and even though you may think that you have jumped through all the hoops and obstacles they put in your way and are just about to get your mortgage they will invariably say, just at the last minute-before exchange of contracts, that there is some dampness and timber decay related problems and that a specialist damp and timber survey is required before the mortgage will be granted.
 
Often your Estate Agent may have an arrangement with a damp-proofing and timber treatment company to provide a ‘free survey’ and ask them to undertake an inspection and provide a quote. But don’t be taken in by these free surveys as there are simply a way for many firms to provide you with quote for work that is not really necessary and will often cost thousands of pounds when there is often a much simpler and cheaper option.
 
Much of this damp-proofing work is unnecessary as rising dampness is often assumed to be the problem when it may in fact be condensation or penetrating damp, due to raised ground levels etc., and these two problems can usually be remedied at a fraction of the cost of remedial works. Similarly woodworm and fungal infestations are usually confined to damp timbers and can be controlled by the removal of the dampness and often the infestation or decay will die out naturally without the need for any preservative treatments.
