One of the unfortunate side-effects of damp problems is that wood in your property can become compromised by wet rot, dry rot, or unwanted pests in the form of woodworm – and if this is the case, timber treatment, timber repair or replacement may be required.
Pretty much any property can be susceptible to these types of timber damage, as wood is such a commonly used building material – from door and window frames, to supporting joists, roof structures and partition walls.
Here at Brick Tie Preservation, our leading and highly qualified timber experts will ensure that your timber repairs are undertaken with the least amount of disruption and in the most cost-effective way possible – with no compromise on our very high standards.
In most cases, we can take care of your timber repairs without the need to remove and replace existing timbers – a comprehensive survey will be carried out in the first instance in order to assess the extent of the woodworm or wood rot, so a bespoke recommendation can be made.
Our timber treatment specialists use a variety of materials and techniques to repair timber damage to:
The type of treatment and repair will depend on the cause of the problem and level of damage, but some of the solutions we offer include:
The treatments can minimise replacement and stop decay in its tracks. These timber treatements include:
Our suvey team know timber and they know infestation – Our standars approach is to avoid chemical application where possible and identify and rectify moisture sources, for best control of timber decay. However, a deep understanding of the safest and most effective chemcial products reinforces treatment when needed. This allows us to guarantee erradication, when this is needed. It is also important that the type of replacement timber matches any proposed treatment – for example; Scots Pine Pinus sylvestris is a perishable timber, which can be easily treated against fungal attack because the vulnerable sapwood is permeable to timber treatments. Sitka Spruce Picea sitchensis on the other hand is also prone to wet rot, however, it is very resistant to the penetration of fungicides and insecticides, so should never be used in high risk situations.
