About Us

You can rest assured with the professional and reliable team at Pass & Co…. 

Pass & Co. was established in south east Essex approximately 39 years ago. The parent company (Haigdata) changed ownership in 1997 to Dangate Ltd. and continued trading as Pass & Co.

Our current director has worked for Pass & Co. for approximately 33 years, as a qualified plasterer and qualified remedial surveyor.  Some of our staff have also been employed with Pass and Co. for many years, however we take a progressive view, and employ young trainees and apprentices who gain experience and qualifications within the remedial industry.

We are delighted to report that during May 2015 we successfully met the assessment to become a Which? Trusted Trader!

At Pass & Co. our surveys are currently FREE of charge, however we may occasionally need to make a small charge for conducting professional damp and/or timber surveys; in these instances clients are often asking for a ‘peace of mind’ survey, in properties that are not currently showing any signs of damp or timber defects. Client’s are advised of the small charge in advance.

In most instances, we provide a free written report giving details of our surveyor’s findings, including any recommendations for treatment (without obligation) as well as an estimate for any remedial works recommended. 

There may be a small charge for condensation-related surveys in newer properties, or for surveys where the inspection is for ‘peace of mind’.

Our staff is experienced, and in many cases hold recognised qualifications relative to the industry.  Help and advise is always free!

Our PCA Membership No. is available upon request.

We also offer FREE inspections for timber and damp defects, and condensation problems on Saturday afternoons.  We cover south east Essex including Halstead, Chelmsford, Corringham, Dagenham and Grays, as well as many other areas. 

Our survey reports are fully comprehensive, and include realistic estimates, so you will have all the information you need.

With our many years of trade experience, Pass & Co. are more than qualified to provide chemical damp proof courses for any property, as well as treatment for all timber decays and infestations.
