Treating Dry Rot & Wet Rot for over 30 years

If you take a look at the pictures above, you’ll see how the rotting wood eats away at the timber and causes tremendous damage. Wood rot only gets worse over time and won’t go away on its own. It needs to be treated by a professional who knows how to remove the rotted wood and prevent it from coming back.

It’s not uncommon for us to find decaying wood whenever we are fitting a kitchen or bathroom, converting a basement or doing a loft conversion. We even find rotting wood whenever we are fitting double-glazing windows. Many homeowners don’t even know they have a problem with rotting wood until they start having some work done to their home.

Wirral Building Services has been treating dry rot and wet wood rot in Wirral for over 30 years. We’ve treated thousands of rotting floorboards, doorcases, staircases, beams and joists in homes of all shapes and sizes. We’ve successfully treated all types of wood decay in every type of timber in your home.

How to Spot Wood Rot in Your Home

Learning the signs to spot wood rot in your home will allow you to catch the problem early and stop it from getting worse. The wood decay will slowly eat through the timber in your home until it loses its strength and eventually breaks. Here are the signs to look out for:

Soft & spongy wood. Grab a screwdriver and gently push it into any suspected areas. If the wood feels soft, spongy or crumbly under slight pressure, you probably have wood rot.

Musty smells. If you can smell a musty smell in the air whenever you walk into a particular room, that is another sure indication of rotting wood or mould. It’s common to smell musty smells in rotting floorboards, basements and attics.

Structural weakness. Keep your eyes peeled for soft, spongy floorboards. If you’re walking across the room and it feels like a floorboard presses down, you might have rotting joists or floorboards. Be on the lookout for doors and windows that are not closing properly. That can indicate that the supporting wood underneath might have wood rot.

Water damage or leaks. Areas with leaks and high humidity are a breeding ground for wood rot. Roof leaks are a perfect example. The rain finds its way in through the roof and lands on the timber structures that hold up the roof. If the problem isn’t found early, it can cause serious structural issues.

Look for visible fungal growth. If you can see any fungus growing on the wood, that is a sure sign that you have a problem. The fungus will usually look like mushrooms or cotton-like substances on the surface of the wood.

If you’ve noticed any of these wood rot warning signs in your home, don’t ignore it. Having decaying wood in your home can be a sign of a bigger problem, such as damp. If you have damp issues in your home, we can do a damp course and treat the rotting wood at the same time.
