We specialize in professional dampness surveys and the permanent remedy of rising damp. Our activity covers 3 main areas of expertise:
Professional dampness surveys: using cutting-edge diagnostic equipment we assess all types of damp. Very old buildings, especially the ones older than 150 years present their own specific challenges that are very different from newer buildings. We specialize in solving difficult or complex dampness cases, our surveyors are amongst the best in the business.
Building dehydration: using a patented magnetic DPC system we permanently resolve the problem of rising damp non-invasively. As a result the building dries out permanently, the crumbling of the wall fabric slows down or stops altogether, the building becomes warmer and often the musty smell vanishes too. For peace of mind, we also monitor the dehydration of every building for 1-2 years or until it becomes dry.
Renovations: dampness problems and associated ground salts often create a lot of decorative or structural damage; in most cases some restoration work is necessary. We advocate and use specialist traditional building materials which not only allow the building to breathe, but which are suitable for the long-term restoration of very old, salty buildings.

For listed building owners we offer professional dampness surveys FREE of charge. We have worked on and dried out many listed buildings, including 800-900 year old Grade I listed commercial properties. Happy to talk to old building owners at the Edinburgh Listed Property Show or feel free to visit us online at
