Dry rot is caused by certain species of fungi that digest parts of the wood which give the wood strength. Wood worm refers to any beetle that attacks timber. Our surveyor will determine if the infestation is active, check for associated problems such as wood rot or damp and if any timbers need replacing
Dry rot can have a serious impact on your home or business:
“Within a matter of months the entire structural integrity of a building can be compromised so it’s vital to act quickly if you suspect dry rot.”

Dry rot can be spotted by checking for any of the following:
