Wet Rot Decay

Wet rot attacks wood in damp conditions and where timber is in contact with damp masonry. Wet rot decay is often found in suspended timber floors and skirting boards in contact with damp masonry. Timber lintels supporting masonry over windows and door openings can also be affected where penetrating damp has occurred.

There are many species of wet rot, the most common being coniophora puteana and fibroporia vallanti.

The Assured Preservations surveyor will carry out an inspection, assess the full extent of the wet rot and provide recommendations and solutions to remedy the attack. Chemical treatment is often not required.
