TIMBER TREATMENTS FOR DRY ROT & WOODWORM
DRY ROT & WET ROT TREATMENT FROM A PROFESSIONAL TEAM
It is essential that any timber decay is identified quickly and accurately to ensure the correct treatment. We have over 50 years experience of the treatment of dry rot and wet rot, so our Yorkshire-based surveying team will quickly identify the type of fungal rot and recommend treatments.
Dry rot (Serpula Lacrymans) affects large surface areas of timber and can produce a mass of Mycelium. The Hyphal strands allow the fungi to spread and contaminate adjacent areas and needs a quick effective treatment.
Wet rot (commonly, Coniophora puteana) is confined to areas of damp timber and masonry. The Mycelium can spread widely in conditions of high humidity, and is rarely seen without dark strands on damp masonry and timber.
Timber replacement may be necessary using preservative treated timber, any existing in situ joists can be protected with membrane and/or a damp proof course.
TIMBER TREATMENT & WOODWORM CONTROL
Identification of dry rot/fungal outbreak and woodworm infestation
Timber rot eradication plan for dry rot or wet rot including chemical spray treatment and/or timber replacement
Identify cause of dry rot/wet rot problems, along with prevention of future outbreaks
Precise treatment plan considering 2 – 4 year life cycle of woodworms
All timber replacements pre-treated with preservative prior to installation
WOODWORM TREATMENT FROM A TRUSTWORTHY TEAM
The common furniture beetle (Anobium punctatum, or commonly, wood worm) is the most prevalent wood boring insect in the UK and infests internal structural timbers. Our surveyors will base their treatment plan on the type of woodworm (or other wood boring insect), the size of the timber and the life cycle and activity of the infestation.
We also work in close collaboration with developers and contractors and enjoy longstanding associations with our partners in the construction industry across Yorkshire, having worked on many prestigious buildings to preserve and maintain their structure. Contact us now – we are here to help.
