Timber Preservation Specialists
Timber decay affects many properties across the UK and can cause severe and unsightly damage to a property’s structural and finishing timbers. Timber is at its most vulnerable and is more likely to decay when it remains damp over long periods.
Sources Of Moisture Leading To Timber Decay
The first step after discovering fungal decay is to make a careful inspection of the building to determine how and where water is entering. The defect permitting access for moisture to enter the building must be repaired, further entry prevented and the area should be dried out sufficiently. The specialist timber survey should identify the possible source(s) and recommend corrective action, such as repairing blocked gutters and defective rainwater goods and replacing blocked air bricks.
