If you’re an architect, surveyor, building contractor, property manager, or anything in between, you’ll understand just how important it is to protect your own/client’s properties. While securing these properties from a security standpoint is essential, shielding them from the threat of damp is equally as important, which is exactly what we can provide at Garratt’s Damp & Timber Ltd. We deliver a number of damp and timber services to properties across London and the Home Counties, as further detailed below.
First and foremost, Garratt’s Damp & Timber Ltd. is all about damp proofing properties. Every property should have a suitable damp proof course in place, as it’s much easier to prevent damp problems from taking hold than eradicate them when they present themselves.
If the properties have a basement, it’s of the utmost importance that you contact a damp surveyor regarding commercial basement tanking. This is because basements are underground, meaning they’re in contact with groundwater, which makes them more vulnerable to flooding. If you want to transform the basement into usable space, basement tanking is essential.
Penetrating and rising damp present themselves in different ways, but whatever a property’s symptoms indicate, you can say with confidence that you need the help of a damp specialist. Whether it’s penetrating or rising damp, the issue won’t simply go away on its own. Instead, without intervention, the problem will worsen, causing structural problems for the property.
Damp problems aren’t the only complications that can take hold of a property; timber issues can also present themselves. This includes dry rot, wet rot, and woodworm. As with damp complications, none of these problems will get better on their own. On the contrary, each of these complications will worsen without professional involvement, meaning structural problems can occur.
Here at Garratt’s Damp & Timber Ltd., we pride ourselves on being the industry experts. For instance, our team boasts the full range of qualifications, including the following:
