Timber Decay Treatment

Wet RotDampness is usually the root cause of timber decay – perhaps from a leak, ingress of water such as from a blocked gutter or downpipe, or rising damp.

The signs of timber decay can include:

  • Cuboidal cracking on the surface of the timber
  • Soft or spongey wood
  • Damp or mushroom smell
  • Surface mould or fungal growth

It is important to treat and repair timber decay to ensure that the building isn’t further damaged, whilst also addressing the source of the dampness that gave rise to the problem.
