A Guide to Timber & Masonry Treatments

Here in the UK, our traditional building methods combined with a predominantly damp, temperate climate causes the housing stock to suffer some of the highest levels of risk from insect and fungal attack to structural timbers.

It is considered 'good practice' in building design to pre-treat timber with preservatives as a lifetime precaution against Dry Rot or Woodworm.

Unfortunately, most traditional buildings (and many modern buildings too) do not have the benefit of such protection and this, combined with poor maintenance, leads to many cases of timber decay being identified during housing surveys.
