Dry Rot is the most serious of the wood rotting as it is capable of travelling through mortar joints to other rooms and even between adjoining properties. It is not sufficient to merely replace the affected timbers. It is essential to establish the underlying cause, sterilise adjacent brickwork and use special replastering specifications.
In cases of wet rot this is caused by timbers having high moisture content coupled with poor ventilation. it is necessary to replace structurally unsound timbers, ensure as far as possible that moisture contents are ket low and where practical ventilation is improved.
Structurally unsound timbers will need to be replaced and the adjoining areas will need to be treated with an approved insecticide. Dampco prides itself on using the most environmentally water based chemicals available, these are low odour and have a re-entry time of just one hour thus minimising inconvenience to occupants.
