One problem that could be happening to the timber in your property is wet rot. This is where damp is entering the walls and structure of your building. It spreads through the materials like the bricks, timber and plaster. This could be the result of a rising damp problem, which is caused by water at the base of the wall being drawn up through the bricks. Alternatively, it could be the result of a problem higher up the building. For example, a blocked filter on your guttering could be pouring water into your brickwork, unseen but potentially very destructive. When the moisture is soaked through the timber, fungus grows which weakens the timber. As the leading experts in timber preservation Dorset has to offer, =Bio-Kil= will sort the cause of the damp.
