Wet rot

Most properties in the UK are affected by a type of wet rot. Unlike dry rot there are many varieties of wet rot, causing varying degrees of damage. Decay is nearly always due to poor maintenance, for instance, deteriorating and poorly designed windows which allow water ingress. Wet rot is probably the single greatest reason for the growth of the uPVC window industry.

Most of our work involves floor or joinery repairs. Where a floor cannot possibly be adequately ventilated we may advise renewal of the floor in concrete, however, we always consider repair works to be the primary solution.

  • Renew decayed timber.
  • Provide dry conditions.
  • No timber treatment is required.
