Damp & dry rot project in Hackney

Damp and dry rot treatment in HackneyDry rot is usually caused by timber being in contact with damp masonry as was the case in Kenwoods latest project. Dry rot was affecting the skirting boards due to dampness in the adjacent walls. In order to treat the dry rot, we removed the skirting boards and the wall plaster. The brickwork was then treated by irrigation to the walls. To irrigate we inject the brickwork with a fungicide and then sterilise the surrounding surface areas with fungicide to eradicate the dry rot outbreak.

The walls of this bedroom area also required treatment for rising damp which involves injecting a new chemical damp proof course into the brickwork. Due to the dry rot outbreak the floor also needed replacement with has been done in concrete and then screed finished to provide a smooth result and a dry room.
