Does my timber require replacement?

In some cases, rotten or damaged timber can be repaired. The extent of the damage and the location of the affected timber will determine whether repair is a viable option.

Damage caused by wood rot

Minor rot that has not spread to the core of the timber may be able to be removed by sanding or cutting away the damaged area, and then treated with a specialist preservative. However, if the rot has spread throughout the timber, repair may not be possible, and replacement may be the only option to ensure the safety and stability of the building.

Damage caused by woodworm

If the damage caused by woodworm is minor and has not affected the structural integrity of the timber, it may be possible to treat the timber. . However, if the woodworm infestation has caused significant damage, it may not be possible to repair the timber. In such cases, the affected wood may need to be replaced entirely.

Damage caused by excess moisture

When timber is affected by excess moisture for example from a leak, it may cause the timber to warp, split or rot. In such cases, the damaged timber may need to be replaced entirely to regain structural integrity.

It’s essential to have a professional assess any damaged timber to determine whether repair or replacement is the best course of action. At Prokil, we use the latest techniques and equipment to provide cost-effective repair solutions.

If you suspect that you have rotten timber in your property, don’t hesitate to contact us for a no-obligation timber survey to assess the damage and recommend the best course of action.
