Urgent Survey

“Is time of the essence? Do you require an urgent timber and damp survey?”

Are you facing a closing date deadline for the house of your dreams? Don’t be rushed in to making a hasty decision or walking away from a house with potential damp or timber decay issues
Rowallan Specialist Surveys will undertake a prompt, efficient and professional timber and damp survey by a fully qualified CSRT surveyor to determine the nature, extent and cause of any problems picked up in the Home Report. This can often be the same or next day should urgency be a factor.

Upon instruction a damp survey, dry rot survey, damp survey or a combination of all will be carried out with direction taken from the Home Report section “Dampness, Rot and Infestation”. Quite often our report can allow the Home Report surveyor to downgrade suspect areas from a “dreaded” Category 3 repair or if remedial work is required you will have the confidence of knowing how extensive/ expensive remedial works are likely to be.

A detailed written timber and damp survey report will be prepared stating all observations and recommendations together with a specification for any remedial works required and a cost assessment for any specialist treatment which may be required. This allows customers to make informed decisions and factor costs into their budget.

Purchasing a property can be a fantastic investment, and even an asset, if you look after it properly. Our expert advice will help you protect and maximise your returns from it. When one of our fully qualified surveyors conducts a thorough inspection you can trust that the professional report we provide you with will detail the most appropriate advice and cost effective solutions to maintain or enhance your property’s value.

Many people tend to view our services as an unnecessary cost and seek unqualified, often “free” advice from contractor who can often underestimate or overestimate the amount of remedial work necessary.

We are experts in damp-proofing, rot eradication and woodworm infestation control so you can be sure that you are getting the right advice prior to purchase.
