Woodworm - Is it a problem or not?
Is it active or not?

Independent Surveyors

Our highly qualified independent surveyors will offer you advice on your woodworm problems and can carry out a building survey. Please call us on free phone 0800 298 5424 and speak to an Independent Chartered Building Surveyor today.


Getting the right advice and solutions for woodworm

The number of times we have talked about woodworm over the years is probably greater than the number of times that we have seen it causing what we would term as structurally significant problems. There is certainly a massive industry around the scare factor with woodworm. We will carry out an inspection during the course of our structural surveys and give you good quality advice with common sense solutions. We certainly don't believe that it is correct to spray woodworm with a chemical every single time. You need to first of all establish that the woodworm is active causing structural problems.


Building Surveying Articles

We have literally thousands of surveying articles to help you, which we as building surveyors have produced over the years. These explain the problems that can occur from having the wrong type of survey and also explain exactly how mortgage surveyors work as opposed to independent building surveyors or structural surveyors. Below is a selection but to see more take a look around our website.

Compare our website articles and compare our surveys

Have a look around our website to see the quality of our articles, for example this one, and look at the quality of our surveys (we are more than happy to send you an example). We pride ourselves on our professional standard and easy to read reports which we have been carrying out for many years on every age, type and style of property across the UK.

We use many photos and sketches in our surveys

In our structural survey reports we include our own unique sketches and photographs from a very powerful optical zoom camera to identify problem areas and to help to explain pictorially the issues which we as Independent Surveyors often find helps to highlight and explain property areas of concern.
