The timbers in our buildings are at the constant threat of attack from either insects or fungal decay. Floorboards, roof trusses and structural beams can unfortunately be affected by infestations of woodworm, dry rot or wet rot and if left untreated, can turn into a major issue.
If you discover evidence of either woodworm or rot damage in your property, helpful advice from a PropertECO surveyor is only a call away. Our experienced surveyors can diagnose whether an infestation is active and if so, recommend the best course of action to halt the decay.
Where decay has gone unnoticed for some time and repairs to the timber are necessary, in many instances we are able to carry out repairs using specialist resins to minimise disturbance to the existing sound timbers.
