Our dry rot solutions
Dry rot is a wood destroying fungus that digests parts of the wood which gives timber strength and stiffness. It is a fungus that eats away at the cellulose component within wood turning it brown and ultimately reducing the timber to a dry and crumbly state with noticeable cuboidal fractures.
It is caused when dampness combined with lack of ventilation provides the ideal conditions for fungal attack. It can affect all types of property, historic or modern and can grow within the cracks and cavities in the walls feeding off debris and wood behind the plaster.
Because dry rot is such a serious problem, it is important to treat the issue as soon as possible. Without treating the dry rot, it will live and grow, feeding off and destroying the timbers in your property in order to live with serious consequences to the structural integrity of the property.
Once we have removed all Dry Rot from your property, you can request restoration from our plastering team.
We offer up to 30 year guarantees on all damp proofing and timber treatments along with optional third party protected guarantee underwritten by Westminster Guarantee Protection Trustees.
