We are a full member of the Property Care Association (PCA). Qualified and approved to undertake Specialist Timber and Damp surveys required by lenders (mortgages, equity release etc..) during the buying/selling process of a property.
All surveys are carried out by a certified surveyor in remedial treatments (C.S.R.T.).
Thanet Timber and Damp Ltd is a family run business with 40 years’ experience in the construction industry and remedial treatment, in trade, supervisory and managerial role. Our workshop and office are based in The Oaks, Manston Industrial Business Park.
I used Thanet Timber and Damp Ltd for a not insubstantial list of work on my newly purchased Victorian house (damp proofing, internal and external timber work).
They were extremely helpful, prompt, conscientious and always available for updates. I was rather nervous as this was the first time that I had commissioned this type of work and they explained everything clearly and kept me in the picture which was very reassuring.
The work was done to budget and on time. I would not hesitate to recommend the company. Many thanks

Really pleased with the service I received. Andy and Iréne went out of their way to help me meet a very tight timeline to get estimates on the work.
The quote was very clear, broken down by individual tasks and price. When the work started Andy and Simon explained the timelines and what will be happening, were happy to discuss any questions I had.
They tidied up after themselves each day and tried to reduce their impact on us as much a possible, which was really appreciated. They also helped me with another issue I had before wrapping up the main job which was great.
Overall super impressed, would recommend fully and without hesitation.

We moved into a big old house and discovered a wealth of work that needed doing urgently. Andrew and Simon had a giant list of external and internal work to get through including wood repairs, damp, guttering, insulation, woodworm repairs. They did it all efficiently and with great care and workmanship. They are highly professional, skilled at what they do and super friendly.
They went above and beyond both in the work they carried out but also the advice and clarity of the schedule

Andy turned up on time and got to work quickly. He kept us up to date with the work. What he doing and why he was doing it. The work done was very good and we were given advice about future maintenance and use. We have booked him to come back for some more work!
Mark, Kent, 2020
After a prompt and professional assessment a discussion of the issues, details of work involved, timescale & costs were given both verbally and in writing. Some joists and plates were replaced, new flooring laid & spraying for woodworm carried out.
Work started & finished on time and to budget. Friendly & helpful throughout. Rubbish removed & paperwork given as promised. All in all a good job done!

Woodworm, dry rot and wet rot are the most common timber decay. Most buildings are built using a certain amount of timber, in older buildings it can be as much as 75% of the whole structure.
Following identification and cause of the timber decay, we will submit recommendations for remedial/treatment.
Rising damp or penetrative damp in walls will, in time, cause deterioration of internal wall plaster and can be detrimental to the health of the occupiers.
The most common causes of rising/penetrative dampness in buildings are:
No existing damp proof course – Bridging of existing damp proof course – Leaking pipes – Faulty rainwater goods.
Following identification and cause of rising/penetrative damp, we will submit recommendations for remedial treatment.
Specialist Timber and damp Surveys are carried out by a fully qualified surveyor (C.S.R.T) registered with the Property Care Association (PCA) and in accordance with the PCA Code of Practice.
We cover the whole of the South East Kent, towns and surrounding areas of:
