Condition Surveys

Hare and Humphreys give advice on the condition and required treatment of many different types of material. We will carry out detailed condition surveys as a stand alone service, or as part of a detailed conservation project.

 We can provide surveys for:

  • whole rooms (including all decoration and all historic contents),
  • decorative schemes only (including paints, wallpapers and other wall treatments)
  • specific materials such as old or defective paints
  • specific problems, such as areas of damage, damp or post paint-stripping problems
  • wall or ceiling paintings

Our detailed surveys will include specific information obtained from moisture readings, measurements, paint and materials analysis if required. The outcome of the survey is a detailed written and photographic report that informs the client about restoration and conservation requirements as well as budget costings.

Please contact us directly about your particular requirements for a condition survey.
