SURVEYS


No one budgets for the problems we solve.  We completely understand your predicament.  Unlike some companies our approach is different and we don't find problems for the sake of it.  In fact, many of our surveys result in little or no work at all.

A Guardian survey means:

Your property is inspected by a fully qualified specialist surveyor

You’ll receive impartial advice – and a full and honest appraisal of your property

There is no obligation on your part

We carry out surveys throughout the Midlands & the South, any subsequent work carried out is covered by our 10-year materials and labour guarantee. We hold full professional indemnity insurance.

what we do


Guardian WATERPROOFING is an award-winning family business with a solid reputation – for its expertise in BASEMENT WATERPROOFING & CONVERSIONS, DAMP PROOFING, CONDENSATION CONTROL, DRY rot & TIMBER treatment, flood prevention & REMEDIATION AND structural waterproofing – over the last 40 years.


Buying or selling a property or just searching for independent advice on any aspects of dampness, timber treatment or structural waterproofing? Why not let one of our fully qualified specialist surveyors carry out a comprehensive inspection and provide you with an impartial, practical solution in any of the following areas:

Woodworm or Timber Decay

Damp Condensation Mould

Structural Waterproofing/Tanking

Flood Remediation

Endoscopic Surveys

Specialist Thermal Imaging Surveys

We will provide a detailed report which is accepted by major lenders; however it is our mission to prevent clients from wasting money by having inappropriate and often damaging work carried out to their properties. We use specialist equipment to differentiate between the different types of damp and do not believe in the unnecessary use of chemicals. Dampness and timber decay are regularly and widely misdiagnosed, very often by a company carrying out a “free survey” and based solely on the readings from a moisture meter or evidence of woodworm exit holes.

High moisture meter readings do not automatically indicate that a property is suffering from rising damp and needs the installation of an expensive chemical damp proof course along with the associated damage to the fabric of the building and full replastering works. Flight holes in timbers do not mean there is an active woodworm infestation and that chemicals need to be sprayed into the environment. Very often, after carrying out a detailed inspection, we find the infestation is historic and the timbers are too dry to sustain any activity and therefore there is no need for chemical treatment. Endoscope/borescope used to see if wall ties are corroded

Very often pre-purchase survey reports will recommend that a BWPDA/PCA surveyor carries out a further inspection of suspect areas of damp or timber decay. We have saved many clients thousands of pounds by carrying out a thorough survey and correctly diagnosing any problems. Of the hundreds of surveys conducted by Guardian every year, often less than 10% result in the installation of a chemical damp proof course or timber treatment being carried out.

Our fully qualified surveyors provide independent, unbiased reports.
