What is wet rot and what causes it to form?
Wet rot is a result of the Coniophora Puteana fungus and is often found in timbers that have been exposed to water or high levels of air humidity. These factors create the perfect breeding ground for the fungus to grow and spread, compromising the integrity of the timbers and leaving your property’s structure vulnerable.
Common causes include structural flaws such as faulty pointing, missing roof tiles and damaged window seals. Drainage and plumbing issues such as burst pipes and blocked drains can also be a factor. Tracking down the cause can often be difficult, as water will often spread out from the source. Only a trained Prokil surveyor can provide you with an accurate report of the problem as well as the solution.
If you’ve spotted any of the following signs, it’s imperative that you act quickly by calling our team:
- Movement of floors
- Timber excretes water when under pressure
- Damp smell
- Cracks underneath paintwork
- Patches of damp
How can Prokil be of assistance?
The external signs of wet rot are not always apparent, so if you suspect wet rot is present let Prokil know right away. As part of our survey, we’ll inspect the likely sources of water infiltration and look for any structural weaknesses or faults. We’ll also assess your timbers in detail before supplying you with a full report of our findings.
From removing the affected timbers and fixing any structural issues to installing an effective waterproofing system, Prokil will ensure that your wet rot issues are a thing of the past.
