All retained timber is treated using the latest fungicidal formulations to prevent further infection.
Fungicidal treatment of masonry is also recommended, as dry rot growth tends to spread through the masonry. If left the mycelia growth in the wall will continue to spread and will re-infect any new timbers in the vicinity that are replaced. An irrigation process is used, holes are drilled into the masonry and fungicidal fluid is pumped into the wall to stem the growth. Rooms can be reoccupied just one hour after the dry rot treatment has been completed.
Peter Cox will also give you any advice on additional steps (if any) to protect your property, and ensure your property is left safe.
Structural and decorative timber infected with fungal decay and woodworm infestation need to be removed and replaced by our timber repair specialists.
