Dry Rot Treatment in North London

There are many defects that can cause an outbreak of Dry Rot, generally there needs to be a moisture source, such as a plumbing leak etc., and inadequate ventilation. In this instance, Kenwood’s dry rot treatment was required after an ongoing problem with defective guttering and a lack of sub floor ventilation. In order to remedy the outbreak we have cut out and removed from site the affected timbers.

Flooring timbers and plaster removed

Flooring replaced and walls replastered

The brickwork surrounding the area is sterilised with a fungicidal Dry Rot fluid to eradicate fungal activity and spores whilst the walls dry out. We have replaced the affected timbers, including joists and floorboards, using pre-treated timbers which have been isolated from the masonry. With the walls replastered and a twenty year written guarantee our client can continue to ensure income from his rental property.
