Timber works associated with decay and infestation

Where fungal decay or infestation occurs in timber, this will invariably leads to those timbers becoming weak, damaged and dangerous. As such, when these problems are discovered, you should seek the help of a trained expert as soon as possible.

Timber decay and infestation are complex problems and require an experienced hand to diagnose them and assess the extent of the damage that has occurred. At Allerton Damp Proofing, our expert CSRT surveyors are leaders in the field of the diagnosis of timber decay and infestation.  As part of our service, our surveyors will recommend:

The appropriate treatment required to eradicate the decay or infestation

This might include the replacement of the timber or its treatment with specialist fungicides or insecticides.

The amount of repairs required (if any) to make the structure safe

Where decay and infestation affects flooring or other structural timbers, their weakening presents a danger. A skilled hand is required to remedy this.

The extent of replacement timbers that will be needed

Assessing the correct quantity of timber replacement required reduces cost whilst ensuring a sound structure.

The works required to stem the source of water which caused decay or infestation

Stopping water reaching timber (by a damp proofing system or otherwise) will prevent the return of the problem.

Carpenter work examples

Once our surveyor has prepared their report, our PCAQT Certified Technicians will carry out the repair works to the highest possible standard. See below for some examples of our carpenter and joiner works associated with damp proofing.

We are suppliers and fitters of new skirting boards and architraves. Our expert joiner and carpenter team fit a variety of internal timber to suit any decoration or design. Additionally, where there is a need for timber to be protected against future decay or infestation, we supply specialist pre-treated and Vac/Vac sealed timber that is resistant to insect attack or fungal decay.


Whether your kitchen has been damaged by the effects of damp or decay, or whether you simply want to upgrade your old kitchen, our expert fitters can design and install a kitchen to meet any needs.  We work with a range of leading suppliers including Magnet and Howdens and we provide a range of kitchens to suit any budget and taste.  If you’d like any further information about our kitchen services, please contact us and one of our expert fitters will be happy to discuss your needs.

“What kind of kitchens can you supply?”

ANSWER: Mostly, we work with suppliers such as Howdens and Magnet, but our fitters have a broad range of experience working with almost any kitchen design, so we can meet whatever your needs are.

“How long have you provided carpentry and joinery services?”

ANSWER: Well, we’ve been in business since 1983 and we’ve been delivering high quality carpenter and joiner services since then!

“Does timber affected by rot always need to be replaced?”


ANSWER: No, not always, but it depends on the extent of the outbreak and how long the timber has been affected by it. As time passes, more and more of the timber is consumed by the rot, making it weaker; if the timber has become too weak to bear weight, it should be replaced. Our surveyors assess the extent of any outbreak and try to keep the replacements to a minimum to save on cost. If timber does not need to be replaced, our staff will treat it with a specialist fungicide instead.

Please note that, as a provider of essential services, we are still open for business, with some restrictions. As a new or existing customer, you can continue to call us to discuss new or existing projects.

Please note that we have had to restrict our work in occupied homes considerably, due to the risk that this might pose to our customers and workforce. However, our work in empty homes and properties continues largely as normal.

If you would like to speak to a member of our team about anything to do with our work during the COVID-19 crisis, please contact us, as normal, using any of the contact details on this site.
