Dry rot is a timber destroying fungus that feeds on wood. This process leaves the timber in a dry and brittle state. It is caused when excessive moisture levels along with poor ventilation combine to produce ideal conditions for fungus to grow.
Timbers infected with dry rot will need to be removed and replaced, all our Repairs will be made to structural and decorative timber where possible. Before we replace any timbers it is essential that the source of the moisture is removed first.

Wet rot is a severe form of timber decay caused by fungal growth. Wet rot can be caused by water ingress into the property via cracks in the building fabric, burst pipes or damp conditions.
