This is how we make sure you get the best advice on damp and timber survey calls
Wow – CPD for Sheffield damp and timber surveyors reached epic levels last week as our boss Bryan Hindle passed on years of skills…..
Okay, so Dry Rot is the bogey man of rots, everyone talks about it and yes, Dry rot is a serious problem. However, it is Wet Rot, in its many forms, which dwarfs the damage done by Dry Rot and is seen in very many older (and some newer) houses.
There are many separate species of Wet Rot and I we won’t bore you with the Latin names. But they all have one thing in common; they thrive in damp timber in almost any situation. This is why Wet Rot is the biggest threat to anyone’s structural timbers, be these floors, roofs, staircases or timber frame components. The thing is; wet rot is so adaptable and can happily grow and consume timber at near saturated condition, or that which is dry to the touch. How so?
Rising damp can cause structural timbers to decay but this interesting case shows how wood has acted as a type of organic damp proof course….
