How Timber Preservation Leeds Can Help

Are you concerned about decay issues with the timber in your property? Have you discovered woodworm, dry rot, or wet rot? Our surveyors can conduct a comprehensive inspection of your property, using state-of-the-art equipment to pinpoint the root cause of the problem. Specialised treatment will be necessary.

The process begins with a thorough survey of your property, analysing its construction and pinpointing the source of the issue. If necessary, we’ll remove and replace timbers that are no longer viable. We’ll then apply specialist fungicides to the remaining timbers to prevent further infestation. The challenge with timber issues is that they’re often concealed, allowing problems to escalate and cause more severe damage over time if left unaddressed.

Dry rot

Dry rot can only thrive and extend its destructive reach if the wood it feeds on remains moist. Consequently, damp subfloors offer the ideal conditions for dry rot to flourish. When left untreated in such a conducive environment, dry rot can wreak havoc on structural timbers, skirting boards, window linings, and other wooden elements.

Wet rot

Wet rot is a prevalent issue that can impact any wooden item subjected to prolonged moisture exposure. Typically, the spread of wet rot is confined to areas of timber in direct contact with elevated water levels.

Like all fungi, it’s crucial to pinpoint the source of moisture before determining the appropriate repair methods.

Woodworm

Woodworm is a term commonly used for wood-boring insects, often linked with the Common Furniture Beetle. If left unaddressed, woodworm can escalate into a more extensive problem, necessitating expensive repairs.

A clear indication of woodworm, particularly Common Furniture Beetle, is the presence of very small 1-2mm holes on the timber’s surface. Once again, the most effective method is to ensure timber preservation Leeds.
