    Buying or selling a home?

    We have been busy over recent weeks carrying out building surveys throughout the North West.

    At Dryabode Property Care we carry out condition surveys in relation to certain parts of a building which could have significant practical and financial implications for the sale or purchase of your home.

    Our company ethos is in providing a professional, ethical and thorough service with the protection of the interests of our clients placed truly first and foremost. Our reports will stand legal scrutiny and we carry professional indemnity insurance for your peace of mind.

    We provide specialist surveys and reports in relation to the following:

    • Damp and timber surveys
    • Condensation
    • Thermal efficiency
    • Cavity and wall tie inspections
    • Roofs, chimneys and gutters.
    • Under suspended timber floors
    • Ventilation
    • Structural integrity including brickwork, timber and lintels

    In fact most building defects that you may find referred to on your Homebuyer survey report.

    We use the latest technology to assist us in providing an accurate diagnosis of a particular building defect including:

    • Electronic moisture measurement including deep probe and invasive survey techniques.
    • Endoscopy (looking into confined spaces such as wall cavities and chimneys using camera and video to assess defects).
    • Laboratory analysis of material samples.
    • Thermal imaging.
    • Photography.

    At Dryabode we are not afraid to tackle challenging conditions during our surveys in order to provide a thorough, accurate and professional service . We can use invasive techniques where permission exists to physically open up parts of a building such as removal of brickwork to carry out wall tie inspections and access into sub-floor voids to properly inspect under-floor structural timber. We also specialise in high level surveys and have an array of high level access equipment in order to safely inspect roofs, chimneys and gutters.
    Throughout the course of any survey, photographic evidence is gathered along with electronic data from our instruments to provide transparency and ultimately peace of mind.


    You will find our approach relaxed, friendly and personable. Following completion of our survey and report, we would be pleased to meet with you personally if required or otherwise discuss the results and options, providing you with the best possible guidance going forward and ensuring your interests are protected and advanced every step of the way.
