Wet Rot

Wet Rot attack

Whilst Dry rot holds the title for the king of timber destruction Wet rot is definately a contender, as we found after a Damp & Timber survey on a ground floor apartment. The inspection found 'tide mark' type stains to walls and visible fungal growths emerging from behind skirting boards and architrave. Wet rot is a general term for the decay of timber due to moisture ingress and covers a variety of fungal species.

Timber !!

Our Free Of Charge Damp & Timber survey was requested on a conversion project. From the first and second floor of a large period property the client was developing 2 self contained flats. Floorboards where lifted and sections of ceiling and under roof boarding was removed to allow a thorough inspection. Armed with magnifying glass and torch rafters, joists and exposed studwork where examined forany signs of woodworm or rot.

Woodworm treatment

We where asked to investgate floor damage to a timber structure kitchen floor in a terraced house in Swindon. A number of floorboards had cracked and in places fallen through, some areas where crumbling when touched. A free of charge damp and timber survey was completed and a written report provided for the client.
