West Midlands Total Preservation are experts in wet rot, dry rot and all forms of fungal decay. From identification through to the correct treatment you can trust WMTP with your wet rot problems. For Wet Rot to grow it needs a regular source of moisture ingress. Water ingress is typically caused by defective plumbing or damaged guttering or downpipes. The moisture combined with the presence of wood can provide the ideal breeding ground for Wet Rot spores. If left un-treated it will remove the strength from the timber and may affect the structural integrity of a building.
On a recent Survey carried out by ourselves, the surface floorboards appeared to be in a reasonable and acceptable condition, however deflection and floor bounce alerted the home owner that a problem could be taking place, which could be affecting the sub-floor supporting timbers, when the floorboards were removed and the joists probed it was clear that wet rot decay had badly affected them.
West Midlands Total Preservation:
- Identify the nature, type and full extent of the identified Timber Infestation
- Establish the extent through finding the source of moisture ingress and provide the correct advice regarding the drying out the adjacent subterranean or secreted areas
- Propose the cure for the rot with full specification and method statement for the rot treatments. Where timber affected by Wet Rot has lost its strength timber would have to be removed and replaced. Any new timber would be treated against the growth of Wet Rot spores
- Advise what additional remedial works which are required to protect and eliminate any further fungal decay within the fabric of the property
