If you are looking to buy, sell or renovate property in the port town of Chatham, you can avoid unnecessary costs and gain peace of mind with our truly independent comprehensive damp and timber surveys.
An epicentre of Britain’s military and naval history, Chatham and the Medway Towns have been revitalised by a wave of modern investment. The Chatham Maritime project has seen the town’s Historic Dockyard augmented with a bustling marina, while nearby Rochester's cathedral and castle reflect the brilliance of Norman architecture.
If you’re investing in or own one of Chatham’s many historic properties, age and the proximity to the sea may put them at risk of degradation. Whether you’re looking to buy, sell or renovate, it’s important that you gain expert knowledge into the condition of your property with our independent and unbiased damp and timber surveys.

By highlighting potential problems before they deteriorate - and avoiding the need for future remedial work or the loss of a sale - our damp and timber survey will ensure you can continue with your plans in an informed and cost-effective manner.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR DAMP AND TIMBER SURVEY
At Hamilton Associate Surveyors Ltd, we provide a full report on the presence of visible and potential damage - variously caused by dampness, wood-boring beetles or fungal decay - as well as offering guidance and recommendations for remedial action where needed.
Our surveys and reports include external and internal observations (with accompanying photographs), the possible causes of any problems found, and our conclusions and recommendations. Where remedial treatment (such as damp proofing) is deemed to be necessary, we are able to supply specifications for any works.
