Millions of properties across the UK have structural and decorative timber, and they are all susceptible to woodworm infestations and fungal decay.
Thankfully, Peter Cox have decades of experience in timber repairs and other associated treatments. Our aim is to deliver timber repairs look that offer true value by being high quality, reliable and tailored specifically for your property’s needs.
When a property is suffering from damp related conditions like wet rot or dry rot or infestations of wood boring beetles, then the need for timber repairs is common. When these problems affect timber it can often result in replacements to the timber, bolt-on steel flitch plates, or splice new and existing timber with epoxy resin repairs.
The normal method of repair for timbers affected by wet rot or dry rot is to trace the full extent of decay and cut the timbers back to sound timbers, treat the exposed sections with fungicide and then introduce new timbers to replace the rotten timber.
Where possible Peter Cox will retain structurally sound timber, however with severe woodworm attacks or wet and dry rot timber may need to be repaired and replaced.
At Peter Cox, we have a wide variety of timber repairs available. This means we can offer the best timber repair method for your property.

This variety of options allows our team to recommend and apply the most suitable timber repair for your property. Whether we are replacing timber, treating it with chemicals or using epoxy resins to repair damage, our highly experienced and qualified surveyors & technicians will not only preserve your properties structural integrity but also maintain its aesthetic qualities too.
When structural and decorative timber is only partially decayed a paste or gel treatment can be used.
A special form of emulsion, which looks like a thick paste, is applied to the surface of the timber where deep penetration is required. Peter Cox Timber Gel contains a concentration of fungicide in an emulsion that is designed to deeply penetrate the timber structure.
If the timber is wet at the time of application the active ingredients diffuse rapidly into the timber to provide protection against both fungal decay and wood boring beetles.
It should be noted that, when controlling fungal decay, it is essential that steps are taken to eliminate any source(s) of moisture causing decay, in conjunction with the chemical treatments, as part of the overall specification of repairs.
