Manchester, fringed by the Cheshire Plain to the south and the Pennines to the north. A city of contrast, its buildings shows a variety of architectural styles, ranging from Victorian (where the widespread use of red brick characterises the city) to contemporary structures. Our customers range from owners of historical and period properties to those with modern and refurbished dwellings. Although the dry rot fungus feeds on wood, it is quite effective at colonising non-wood building materials such as plaster, brick and stone in search of more timber; meaning both old and modern households could be in danger.
Properties of any age, size or history can be exposed to the risks of damage from woodworm, rot and damp. These kinds of problems tend be more prevalent in older buildings, such as Victorian and early 20th Century properties or those that have been refurbished or repurposed over time. Unfortunately, the damage caused by these problems is not always immediately obvious.
The area surrounding the River Irwell and the River Medlock is more likely to suffer flood damage from surface water flooding (flash flooding after intensive rainfall) than river flood water. 2007, 2010 and 2013 all saw intense rain storms in which widespread surface flooding affected Wilmslow, Hale, Bramhall, Stockport, Cheadle Hulme, Bury and other areas of Greater Manchester. Months after flood waters have retreated, damp may no longer be visible. Yet moisture levels in some timbers within a property, can remain high enough (above about 20%) for dry rot to decay the wood.
