Our fully qualified Property Care Association (PCA) timber and damp surveyor attend properties throughout London and thoroughly survey both commercial and residential properties for damp & dry rot, using the surface mode of an electronic ‘Survey Master’ damp meter. They also inspect all accessible floors, by lifting short ends of floorboards and probing timbers with a sharp instrument. Unfortunately True Dry Rot (Serpula lacrymans) doesn’t need much exposing as in most cases it has carried out its own exposure by destroying timbers as it spreads.
Many attacks of the dreaded Dry Rot Fungus are caused caused by a leaking rainwater goods, rising damp and insufficient sub-floor ventilation. Existing air bricks often need to be unblocked and additional vents need to be installed in order to increase the sub-floor ventilation. Our Surveyors are very experienced and thorough and in addition to locating the full extent of the attack of timber decay, they carry out an external inspection to determine the cause because damp causes timber decay which cannot survive without it.
Following our Survey Tapco HomeDry’s experienced Damp Proofing and Dry Rot operatives will to carry out very specialist dry rot treatment and complete restoration to all of the affected areas.
