May 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Timberwise Manchester were called to provide a pre-purchase Timber and Damp survey on an empty property to identify if there were any potential pitfalls that the prospective owner needed to know about. Upon walking into the hallway the tell tale sign of ‘spongy’ floorboards gave a clue of what was to come! The images attached give an indication of the destructive power of Dry rot. The outbreak had resulted in the structural breakdown of the sub floor joists and floor boards in the kitchen and hallway.

To rectify the damage caused by the Dry rot outbreak (http://www.timberwise.co.uk/timberwise-for-home/home-property-services/dry-rot-and-wet-rot-treatments/wet-and-dry-rot/) Timberwise removed the damaged flooring, joists, skirting boards and other affected timbers. The area was then treated with a fungicide and damaged timbers replaced.
