The most frequent source of condensation problems is poor ventilation within the property. Our surveyors will establish the source of your ventilation issues, and put together a detailed report specifically tailored to your property.

Condensation and mould solutions offered by Peter Cox include ventilation systemsair quality monitoring and thermal plaster solutions.
