Wet rot can cause severe damage to timbers

Wet rot is generally more common than dry rot and is caused by continuous damp conditions affecting timber. As timber can account for up to 70% of the materials used in the construction of a property, if left untreated, it can cause severe damage as timbers are undermined.

Typical signs of wet rot are a damp, musty smell, the cracking and weakening of timber and the presence of fungal growth.

In order to fix a wet rot problem, the source of water ingress needs to be dealt with, so it’s important to identify the full extent of the problem before damaged timbers can be replaced.
