Dry Rot / Wet Rot

Dry rot and wet rot can affect buildings of all ages and if decay is discovered it should be identified and remedial action taken without delay. Identifying the type and cause of the fungal decay is important as this will determine the form of corrective action to be considered. A detailed diagnostic inspection should be carried out by a trained and qualified specialist surveyor.


The term “woodworm” is the generic name given to the larvae of many species of wood boring insects. By far the most common wood destroying beetle found in British buildings today is the Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium Punctatum)

Before a decision can be made on the appropriate treatment, a surveyor must inspect the affected timbers in order to ascertain the exact species of the insect as varying treatments will apply according to the type of invading organism identified. Fortunately, the most common infestation is also one of the easiest to treat.
