Dry rot

Contact us

Dry rot is one of the most damaging conditions you can get in a property.  To grow or flourish, dry rot needs moisture.  This could come from many sources such as a drip from a leaky pipe, rain water from the roof, damaged gutters or down pipes. 

Once it starts growing, often unseen, it can inflict serious damage on timber anywhere in a property.  The longer you leave it, the worse it can become with the unfortunate knock on effect of increasing the likely cost of dry rot treatment.

How dry rot occurs

Dry rot spores are present everywhere to some degree in every home.  On their own they are harmless.  However, if they are given water they will germinate forming a large fluffy cotton wool like fungus.  Once it reaches this stage, dry rot can cause serious harm to a building causing timber to lose its structure and integrity over time.  To find out more on what it looks like and how to spot it, visit our how to identify dry rot web page.

How to fix a dry rot problem

A survey will be able to identify the full scope of any dry rot problem.  Using specialist surveying tools the progress of any dry rot infestations can be checked in concealed areas within a property.  If a survey reveals the presence of dry rot then the dry rot treatment recommended will depend on the severity of the dry rot outbreak.

The survey was arranged and the necessary works identified and explained quickly and concisely. After reviewing the quote, the works were scheduled within a couple of weeks. The guy who actually did the work was friendly and informative and the work has been done to an apparently high standard. All in all, very happy with the overall experience. Price seemed competitive too.
First rate service from start to finish. Rising damp problem resolved with extreme professionalism and care. Cannot rate highly enough. Fab tradesmen, fab work...........just fab!
I have dealt with Wise property care for a number of years now and have found them to be very professional in all aspects of their business.
