Wet / Dry Rot Survey

Rot is one of the major causes of timber decay in old, historic and even modern buildings. The two most common types of wood rot include wet rot and dry rot, which are caused by fungal decay in building timbers.

A wide range of fungus species, known as ‘lignicolous’ fungi are responsible for damage, which can affect roof joists, window frames, floorboards, stairs and skirting boards. Damp and poor ventilation are usually the main reasons for rotting wood.

It is worth noting that dry rot can seriously damage your property so if you suspect that it is present it is well worth getting professional advice; this is where B&D Property Services can help! If you are based within the West Coast of Scotland, including Glasgow or Ayrshire why not give us a call on 01294 315067 to discuss your requirements.
