One of the problems that can cause damage to your timber is wet rot. As the name suggests, this is rot that is in very damp timber. Rot is the growth of fungal spores within the timber. Often, these spores are already present in the timber from before the construction process, but the moisture activates the growth processes. Wet rot is a type of fungal growth that requires high moisture levels, often about 50%. This means that it occurs with a high saturation level of water. Commonly this is because of a burst pipe, leaking gutter or other direct cause of water in the timber. If you have signs of wet rot, you need the best timber preservation Batcombe has to offer. We will start by identifying the cause of the water and rectifying it. Then we remove the affected timber, replacing it with timber that has been treated to resist rot. After the problem is resolved, we treat all the timber with a substance which prevents rot. This is the best choice for the timber preservation Batcombe customers need and can increase the lifespan of your property.
Another problem needing timber preservation Batcombe customers can face is dry rot. Like wet rot, this is a fungal spore problem, but it requires less moisture, often as little as 20%. This means that it can occur from poor ventilation, such as in houses where the air is regularly damp. A sign of this can be if you regularly have condensation on the windows. As with wet rot, when we carry out the timber preservation Batcombe customers need, we begin by identifying the problem, removing the affected timber to replace with treated timber, and then treating all the timber. If there is a ventilation problem, we can also install solutions like sub floor ventilation.
A different problem that requires the best timber preservation Batcombe has to offer is woodworm. This is where insects lay eggs which burrow into the timber, progressively weakening the structural integrity of the whole thing. We can deal with this by treating the timber to prevent future infestations. If the timber is badly damaged, it can also be replaced so that the integrity of the property is maintained.
