If our Peter Cox surveyors detect wet rot, the first step in the treatment is to eliminate the unwanted sources of moisture and make sure the timber is dried out. As wet rot cannot grow without a source of water, it is essential to remove this. Common sources of moisture that lead to wet rot include problems with roofing, gutters, pipes, leaking cellars or basements, and poor sub floor ventilation.
The next step will be to identify the extent of any wet rot damage to the structural and decorative timber. Timbers damaged by wet rot will need to be removed and replaced by a Peter Cox timber repair specialist.
Any timber that is deemed safe enough to be retained will be treated with a fungicidal treatment to ensure no further growth of wet rot fungus.
Throughout the wet rot treatment process, Peter Cox will also give you any advice on additional steps that may be required to ensure your property is left safe from future outbreaks of wet rot.
For example, waterproofing services may be necessary if the wet rot has manifested in a basement or cellar underneath your property, to make this space watertight.
