If you are looking to buy, sell or renovate property in the seaside town of Whitstable, you can avoid unnecessary costs and gain peace of mind with our truly independent comprehensive damp and timber surveys.
The picturesque town of Whitstable is among the most desirable areas to live in Kent. A popular Victorian seaside resort, Whitstable has been the epicentre of the English oyster trade since at least Roman times, thanks to its famous ‘Native Oysters’. Whitstable Harbour still bustles with life, while the town’s tranquil beaches are an ideal place to while away the hours.
If you’re investing in or already own one of Whitstable’s many historic properties, their age and 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.
Hamilton are independent surveyors and members of the PROPERTY CARE ASSOCIATION (P.C.A.). This means we have no financial interest in your survey results, empowering you to act on our recommendations with complete confidence.
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.
