F is for…… Freya the Female Surveyor.
In this episode of The A-Z of Damp from Atlantis Damp & Timber Proofing Specialists Ltd, F is for…… Freya the Female Surveyor.
We hope that you have got the strong impression from looking at our website and any direct dealings that you have had with us that Jamie Watkins is truly passionate about supplying honest, pragmatic and professional advice to homeowners across Cheshire. Atlantis Damp Proofing & Timber Specialists Ltd has grown year on year and in July 2016 we decided to expand our ability to survey more local properties.
The solution to our problem
Of course, it was clear that it wouldn’t be easy to find an additional surveyor who would share Jamie’s passion and be prepared to inherently live Atlantis Damp Proofing’s brand values! Then it came to us. Who better to help expand the Company business than Jamie’s wife – Freya!
Freya has been involved in the business right from the start. She helps to balance the books; advising on H&S and HR issues; managing our website and social media presence and we decided to invest in her development to put her through her CSRT Qualifications to join the Atlantis Damp Proofing team as a full time surveyor.
Jamie’s mission has always been to provide honest advice to all his customers and do everything in his power to give them a 5-star experience when dealing with him and his trusted team. With this in mind, he has been busy training Freya up to this standard. As Jamie remains our only fully qualified surveyor, he will be accompanying Freya on all her surveys until he is happy that her expertise is at the right level and Freya holds the CSRT Qualification. Therefore it’s highly likely that you may welcome both Jamie and Freya into your home when you invite us to provide a report for you.
So far Freya has assisted in identifying problems with many different causes including:
- Identifying woodworm in floorboards
- Identifying Dry Rot in a sub floor void
- Understanding how raised external levels can bridge a DPC
- Seeing how light weight plasters allow water to track through from a damp wall
- Diagnosing and treating rising damp
- Understanding, diagnosing and treating penetrating damp due to porous brickwork
- Identifying damp due to wall-to-floor bridging
- Diagnosing and treating condensation in a cellar
- Diagnosing and treating condensation in rented properties
When can I book a Female Surveyor?
We feel that having a female surveyor on the team will be a unique difference for Atlantis Damp Proofing & Timber Specialists Ltd and we know that no other Damp Proofing company in Cheshire can offer you this option. You may be a single lady who feels more comfortable dealing directly with another female. Whatever you need, we endeavour to help. We see the addition of ‘Freya the Female Surveyor’ as just another string to our bow to provide you an excellent customer experience from the first phone call or email right through to the completed solution.
We’ll keep you posted as to how Freya progresses with her qualification. She has successfully passed her Health and Safety/ Legal Module and Damp Proofing exam and is now a Certificated Surveyor of Dampness in Buildings (CSDB)
