Timber Preservation

It is possible to offer a comprehensive treatment of timbers against woodworm, wet rot and dry rot.

Here’s How We Help

In Case of Woodworm Infestation

Woodworms refer to the beetles that cause infestation in the woodwork. Among the woodworms, the Common Furniture Beetle attacks softwoods, Death Watch Beetle infests oaks and the Wood Boring Weevil attacks timbers that have dampness in them. These timbers are generally located in cellars.

Our qualified damp proofing technicians carry out extensive chemical treatment and our carpenters replace the woodwork or do repairs wherever necessary. We treat a Woodworm infestation of timber by applying a special spray on the structural timbers such as floor boards, roof timbers as well as on the timber used in staircases.

If the infestation is really quite severe, we use penetrative pastes or gel. Most importantly, the infestation causes some of the timbers used in the house to lose their structural strength and integrity. This makes them really quite unsafe, which is why we completely replace such timbers.

In Case of Dry rot and Wet rot

Dry rot and wet rot infestations are really quite severe and there is often no choice but to replace the affected timber completely. Our technicians identify the source of the dampness and get it eliminated. Our technicians would then strip the adjoining plaster work, treat the mycelium that grows through the masonry and then have the masonry chemically sterilized.
