Dry rot is the common phrase used to categorise wood decay caused by a species of fungus called Serpula Lacrymans. This fungus thrives in moist environments, so it is commonly found in poorly ventilated areas or on the masonry where the structure of the building has got wet.
Dry rot is aggressive in nature and can, if it’s not treated quickly, damage the structural integrity of the timber.
Our team of dry rot specialists will work quickly from the first call you have with us to assess and rectify the dry rot damage in your home. Contact us today to get your property back to full health again with dry rot treatment.
Identifying dry rot in your Guildford or Crawley Property
It’s not always easy for property owners to spot the signs which is why we always recommend arranging for a dry rot expert to do a full assessment. The indications of dry rot that our team will look out for are:
Fine grey strands in the wood
Fungus growth that looks like cotton wool
Cuboidal cracking of the timber
Red dust that’s collected on the surface or near the damaged wood
Dry rot treatments in Guildford & Crawley
Our team will conduct a thorough investigation of the property and treat it by:
Finding all areas affected by dry rot
Identifying the source of the moisture that has caused the damage, which we will then stop
Removing the affected timber
In place of the damaged wood, we will install pre-treated timber to prevent dry rot coming back in the future
Treating all wood not affected by dry rot with a specially formulated fungicide
Ensuring contact with other timbers in the structure is minimised; our wood rot repair specialists will remove any remaining traces of dry rot in the walls or other materials.

"We found the Prokil surveyor very professional, genuine and approachable. I was invited to accompany him during his survey and everything was explained to me as he went along. I definitely felt like a valued customer without any pushiness or pressure. The work went ahead as scheduled without any delays or interruptions and they left the house very clean and tidy when the work was finished. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Prokil to anyone."
