Why FD?

Why Freeman Dawson?

Why should I chose Freeman Dawson? There are two questions which you should ask any surveyor, firstly what are your qualifications (FD surveyors are qualified and experienced) and secondly are you paid on commission (FD surveyors are not). From the answers you can draw your own conclusions (does pensions mis-selling ring a bell here?). What sort of report will you get? FD reports are prepared on an individual basis by each surveyor and the duty of care we owe our clients is taken very seriously. We will often comment on something we feel should be drawn to your attention perhaps recommending a structural opinion for example.

Our aim is to protect your property with the most effective measures at the right price. We use our experience to your advantage bringing an informed and innovative approach to the problems we encounter. We undertake Resin repairs to timbers and masonry and repairs to Timber framed buildings including Lime rendering. We are constantly reviewing techniques and products in an attempt to improve the service we give.

One example of our attitude to our business is to invite you to use this site to ask us questions on any timber or damp problems to which we will reply as soon as possible. From time to time we hope to provide information on various subjects which will be of interest to you and may stimulate debate. You may have already noticed that in our approach to chemical damp proof courses, for example, or in the statement that many Common Furniture Beetle infestations do not require any treatment, we do not follow the herd.

Our operational area covers a 100 mile radius from our base in High Wycombe but we are prepared to travel further to carry out surveys and act as consultants if required.
