DRY ROT

DampGuard Timber Preservation specialist treatment for dry rot in Romney

Marsh, Lydd, Hythe, Tenterden, Folkestone and Ashford.

Dry Rot is fungal decay of timber and is a major cause of damage within buildings.
What is Dry Rot?
The cause usually lies in a combination of dampness and a lack of ventilation, so providing an ideal environment for fungal attack on timber.
Roof spaces where there may be leakage or dampness due to broken tiles or damaged/blocked gutters are a common area for concern and once dry rot has appeared it can be very persistent.
Fine strands of fungal mycelium, looking rather like fine cotton wool, spread across the surface of the wood over substantial distances searching for more damp wood to colonise. The mycelium also carries moisture to other, drier, timbers which are then also susceptible to rot.
Once these underlying problems have been corrected, any damaged or weakened structural timbers must be removed and replaced before treatment is begun.
How is dry rot treated?
DampGuard Timber Preservation specialists will undertake all the necessary work at a cost competitive price and with the assurance of 30 year guarantees after the work has been completed.
Dry rot can spread across and even through brickwork in its search for new timber to attack. The rate of growth is often rapid (30m to 40 mm per week) which means that extensive damage can be caused to a property in a very short timescale.
As the fungus draws moisture out, the timber loses weight and shrinks into cuboidal pieces.
When the fungus fruits, it produces a fleshy white or pale grey fruit body which becomes covered in rusty red coloured spores which, when discharged in their millions, are responsible for the characteristic red dust associated with the condition.
The first consideration must always be the identification and remedy of the causes of the dry rot - usually a roofing or other building failure which has allowed dampness into a property often with an associated lack of ventilation which allows the damp environment to persist.
The retained timbers are then treated with a fungicidal spray, making sure that all areas affected have been exposed and no infected wood has been overlooked.  Adjacent areas such as walls and brickwork must also be sprayed to ensure the elimination of all possible fungal sites.
