Dry Rot Survey and Treatment

Before professional dry rot treatment can be carried out on your property, we provide a thorough inspection of your property to assess the extent of your dry rot problem. Conducted by one of our qualified surveyors, this may require removing some plaster, skirting or panelling to evaluate the full extent of the dry rot and its causes.

During our dry rot survey, our surveyor will:

  • Perform a detailed inspection of your property
  • Check for associated problems such as other types of rot or signs of damp
  • Inspect other areas of your property that may be at risk
  • Provide a cost-effective solution to your problem
  • Provide you with a full report outlining findings in each specific area of your property.

Dealing with Dry Rot

Once our dry rot survey has been completed, a solution has been agreed upon and our surveyor has arranged a suitable date with you; our technicians will arrive and start our dry rot treatment process. Our technicians will go through the following steps to treat dry rot in your home.

1. Stop the Moisture Source

Locate and remove any wall plaster or infected wood to allow direct access to the treatment area. Our pre-treatment work will prevent future dry rot spore from germinating.

2. Remove Damaged Area

All decayed wood and damaged linings such as panelling, skirting, ceilings and plaster are removed to prevent the further spread of the rot fungus.

3. Targeted Dry Rot Treatment

If structural timbers and brickwork are affected by the dry rot fungus then a fungicidal paste is applied to form a protective chemical barrier. This will not only prevent wood rotting fungi from re-establishing itself but prevent attacks from wood-boring insects for many years to come.

4. Damaged Timber Replacement

Once our property technicians is certain that dry rot is fully eradicated from your home, they will begin replacing timber with preservative-treated timbers.
