Timber Treatment

We know how effective wood can be as a construction material and because wood is so prevalent in properties of all kinds, it is essential that it is kept dry and free from beetle activity. Some fungi and insects require expensive remedial measures, while others do not require treatment at all, but correct identification is essential if the right treatment is to be given. As well as correctly diagnosing the conditions which threaten structural timbers, we have the ability to deploy treatments that halt their progress.

Damp Proofing

Water is one of the greatest threats to the fabric of a building, and as we live in a rainy climate it imperative that your damp proof course is working correctly. A damp proof course is an effective and hard working barrier against the unwanted moisture that can bring so much damage and we are experienced specialists in the installation of damp proof courses.

Onsite Surveys

Whether you’re a buyer or a vendor, it is very important to understand if a property and its wood are under threat from timber pests, fungi or damp. Our service provides a reliable and independent survey of a building’s structural timbers and walls for damp. These surveys are recognised and respected by mortgage lenders and are invaluable in providing peace-of-mind in property transactions.
