Here are some pictures of dry rot that we have found on our surveys in Wiltshire and Somerset. All of those pictures below we have carried out  the dry rot treatment -timber treatment and all associated repairs. Some of the dry rot outbreaks  were caused by leaks but mainly because of poor sub floor ventilation.

Dry rot treatment isn’t difficult but I would always advise that  a member of the Property Care Association carries out the dry rot  treatment as they will be trained professionals. The cause is the most important thing to find and rectify and obviously dry down the area.

Here is Meg the dry rot search dog in action working for us.

We also have dry rot monitors that can be left in place, these are normally used on the listed buildings where limited works are allowed or after remedial works.
