Wet rot and dry rot treatment

Wet and dry rot treatment

There are two common types of rot that can occur in the wood in your home; wet rot and dry rot. Both of these are forms of fungal decay that can cause structural damage to buildings. Identifying the difference between wood rot is the first step to getting rid of rot from your property permanently. Dry rotĀ is the most seriousĀ form of fungus decay in a building. Dry rot is caused by the presence of damp, moisture and condensation in the home, and can cause serious damage to your property affecting walls, floors, and and destroys timber. Although wet rot is more common, it is generally less serious. The wet rot problems are usually confined to areas where the timber has become wet and stays wet over time. Unlike wet rot, dry rot can spread far beyond the point where moisture and damp have entered the home

"Mark and Paul arrived promptly on the date arranged. Discussed the job, how he would do it etc., and we agreed on a couple of extras. Mark did an excellent job on restoring our chimneys, and left the site clean and tidy. Very pleasant to deal with; would have no hesitation in requesting his help again." September 2021
