Timber Treatment & Preservation

Timber has been used as a building material for thousands of years and still forms a major component of buildings today.

When properly maintained it is a strong and versatile building material, but any increase in moisture leaves timber susceptible to fungal infection and wood-boring insects.

These problems often arise from poor initial building design, or from the deterioration of external protections (see also damp proofing), such as roofs and guttering, or from building work that has breached the property’s damp proofing.

Andy is one of the foremost independent authorities on damp and timber infestation and his report and recommendations will be a full appraisal of the cause and eradication.
