What is Dry Rot?
Dry rot is a specific type of rot known formally as Serpula Lacyrmans. Perhaps most well known due to its vastly destructive nature, the speed in which it can spread and the fact that it can grow over dry materials.
Dry rot can affect all forms of timbers including those which are pre-treated and can grow up masonry walls, often behind plasterwork or between cavities.
Due to the importance of correctly identifying and rapidly treating dry rot, Prokil have a dedicated team of expert surveyors available. They will be able to assist in identifying why the dry rot fungus has formed, what level of remedial work is required and ultimately how to best prevent its return.
