Consultants in Damage Assessment & Business Recovery

Damp Investigation

When a property is experiencing an unexplained damp issue, it can become an incredibly complex issue. Not only is it stressful for the property occupant, but if the right investigation methodology is not employed, identifying the issue can become a costly and drawn-out process. Too often, only the symptoms of a damp issue are treated, without fully addressing the cause. This means the solutions put in place end up being a temporary fix, or often completely unnecessary and ineffective.

At DF&A, we do not just treat the symptoms, our independent consultants take a holistic approach, utilising a range of expert investigation techniques to resolve the issues – first time. When involving DF&A in your project or claim, we will:

  • Engage with you to understand the case history and any potential areas of dispute
  • Engage appropriate supplementary expertise to rule out all potential causes e.g. leak detection, drainage investigation
  • Carry out water testing to establish the source of any residual damp
  • Carry out a moisture survey to establish the extent of moisture damage
  • Carry out necessary invasive investigation to understand the impact to the building fabric or potential sources of moisture
  • Carry out a full visual inspection of the internal and external areas of the property to identify contributory defects
  • Carry out rising damp analysis through chemical testing using our independent in-house laboratory
  • Provide advice on the necessary restoration or reinstatement works required to resolve the issue
  • Carry out completion gravimetric testing to objectively confirm issues have been resolved
