Spot the Symptoms of Wet Rot

  • Timbers within your home cracking or shrinking,
  • Timber developing a grey film with patches of purple or yellow,
  • Timber covered in red or orange dust,
  • Finding orange spores

Wet rot is a kind of fungus that attacks timber when it becomes damp: wet rot requires damp conditions to thrive, which is why we often see the problem alongside other issues, such as Dry Rot and Rising Damp.  No matter how severe your wet rot problem, the good news is that with the right kind of expert support it can be remedied in a fast, efficient and cost-effective way.
