Rot is one of the major causes of timber decay in old, historic and even modern buildings. The two most common types of wood rot include wet rot and dry rot, which are caused by fungal decay in building timbers.
A wide range of fungus species, known as ‘lignicolous’ fungi are responsible for damage, which can affect roof joists, window frames, floorboards, stairs and skirting boards. Dampness and poor ventilation are usually the main reasons for rotting wood.
