Specialist Wet And Dry Rot Treatment Experts In Exeter & The South West

Often when timber has been in contact with damp or condensation for a prolonged amount of time it runs the risk of having wet or dry rot. It’s best to ensure that this issue doesn’t continue as fungal decay can cause irreparable timber damage. Our team is experienced and highly trained in identifying these issues and solving them. If caught early, our preservation specialists can treat the timber efficiently and effectively.

Repairing Dry Rot

Dry rot is the most serious form of fungal damage. If left untreated, it can spread quickly throughout the timber in the building, causing extensive damage and an expensive repair bill. 

If assessed and treated by our dry rot specialists early, the affected timber can be removed and the area can be chemically treated before an efficient dry rot repair is completed. We are trained and experienced in dry rot treatment for residential and commercial properties. 

Treating Wet Rot Fast

Wet rot does not spread as fast as dry rot, but its capacity for damage shouldn’t be underestimated. Wet rot tends to concentrate on the damp areas of timber, which slows the process of decay down. Wet rot must be treated as soon as it’s noticeable to prevent detrimental damage to your home or business.

We chemically treat the area with a preservative included to reinforce the wet rot treatment so you can have peace of mind that the issue is resolved.
