Dealing with dry rot
Dry rot moves through wood quickly, so it needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. The first step is to arrange a survey. A member of our team in Deeside will visit your domestic or commercial site so that we can assess the extent of the damage.
Once we’ve seen what we’re dealing with, we can give you a fully costed quote so you know what to expect and can give us the go ahead. For more information or to arrange a consultation, get in touch today.
Worried about woodworm?
Woodworm can cause significant structural damage to your property. The signs include small holes surrounded by wood dust and you may even see woodworm beetles. The damage is actually caused by the larvae, so timber will need to be treated with pesticides before any damaged sections can be replaced. Woodworm is a relatively common issue that can be dealt with before too much damage is done. If you’re not sure and would like someone to take a look, contact Dampshield today.
