Wood Treatment

Wood is vulnerable to attack from insects, damp and fungi and needs protection from all of these to extend its working life.

Correctly treated with modern wood protection products and processes, timber’s long term durability, performance and market appeal can be significantly enhanced.

We offer the very latest treatments to protect your timbers against wood decay, insect attack and the threat of fire. We work closely with timber protection partners so we can offer the best treatment solutions.

The name woodworm is the commonly used generic term for a number of wood boring insects. These lay their eggs on or in timber and their larvae feed upon the cellulose in the wood boring through it to leave a network of tunnels, thus damaging and weakening the structure.

Woodworm attack is varied – both in the type of timber which different species infest and their larval life-span which can range from ten months to 11 years. This means that accurate identification by the surveyor is the first essential step because not all woodworm infestations need treatment.

The most frequent, and the most serious, cause of damage to building timber is fungal decay, commonly known as Dry Rot or Wet Rot, and this can affect all timber, historic or modern. Dampness combined with lack of ventilation provides the ideal conditions for fungal attack on timber.
