Timber Preservation

Timber Preservation

Infestations such as wood-rotting fungi and woodworm can cause damage to untreated timber in buildings. This can not only cause decay of the building fabric, if left untreated, but the structural integrity of the building can be put at risk leading to substantial costs for repair and refurbishment.

The three problems most likely to affect timber are woodworm, dry rot and wet rot.

Whether the problem is new or historic, we will start off by identifying the likely cause of the problem and how far the decay has spread. We can then advise you on the most appropriate treatment.
