Our local team of specialists in Southampton provide damp proofing solutions for damp issues such as rising damp, penetrating damp as well as condensation. To get rid of damp from your property the first step is to book a survey with your local qualified surveyor.

Once the damp survey has been booked, the PCA qualified surveyor will provide a full inspection of both the interior and exteriors of the building. The damp and timber specialist will assess for:

  • The type of damp problem
  • The cause of the damp issue
  • What method of damp proofing could be used to treat the issue

Once the inspection has been completed by the surveyor, then a detailed damp and timber report will be compiled and sent to the client explaining all the treatments that could be used to get rid of the damp problem. At Timberwise we have a number of damp proofing treatments including adding a damp proof course, The DryTek Damp Proofing System and electro osmotic damp proofing.

Woodworm Treatment in Southampton

Damp issues can lead to timber issues such as woodworm, which is a major issue for both residential and commercial property owners alike. For the woodworm treatment to be effective then the beetle must be correctly identified.

There are a number of different types of woodworm beetles that can cause structural damage to your property from the common furniture beetle to the deathwatch beetle. Timberwise has a team of specialist woodworm surveyors who have a large amount of experience in identifying and treating wood boring insects.

Southampton Dry Rot Experts

Dry Rot is a real problem for many property owners and if not treated promptly can cause serious damage. Dry Rot is a unique type of fungi which has the ability to progress through the property and destroy the structure of timber’s leaving the property structurally weakened.

There are a number of signs to look out for with dry rot – the easiest being the pizza like appearance of the fruiting body. The orange spore dust from these fruiting bodies can also be the first indication that the property owner may have dry rot present.

A thorough inspection by the Timberwise team is the most efficient way of solving the problem. The surveyor will not only check for dry rot but also any other types of rot as well as the possibility of damp.
