Woodworm Treatment Guide

Identifying woodworm depends on the type of wood and the species of wood boring beetle responsible as the tell-tale signs of infestation can differ.


Dry Rot Treatment Guide

Dry rot, or Serpula Lacrymans, is a term used to describe a unique type of wood rot that occurs in damp timber despite its misleading name. Dry rot is the most serious form of fungal wood decay as it attacks the parts of timber that provide strength.  

Wet Wood
