Wood Preservation

The wooden components of our homes are susceptible to attack from outside factors and if left unchecked the wood can become extremely damaged, rotten, brittle and eventually unsafe for residential purposes.

It’s important to ensure that if elements of your home such as the floor, walls, roof or supports are made from wood, that are they are given the correct protective and preventative treatment to keep them safe from damp, dry rot and insect damage.

Wood Infestation

Signs of woodworm vary but the most common is seeing small holes in wood. This is caused by the beetle laying eggs under the surface, which results in the hatched grubs feed on the wood causing damage as severe as structural damage to your property. This process is repeated through life cycles so we recommend to call us at the first sign of an infestation.

Damp & Water Proofing

Damp Proofing Services

Damp can be categorised into three groups of rising damp, penetrating damp and condensation. Each type causes different damage and requires specific treatments. It’s vital to identify the type of damp causing the problem so the correct solution can be chosen.  

Rising damp generally occurs at floor level and can rise up 1 metre, while penetrating damp is typically caused when building damage or defects allows the water to penetrate. Condensation is the result of bad ventilation and airflow.

Treating Damp

The only way to effectively treat damp and prevent it from reoccurring is to damp proof the affected area. As mentioned above, we must first identify the type of damp causing the damage, after which we can apply the correct treatment.
