Our Southampton team of damp proofing specialists provide services for problems related to rising damp treatment, penetrating damp as well as condensation. There are a number of tell tale signs of dampness to look out. For example, rising damp leaves a horizontal brown “tide mark” or discoloured marks at around 1 meter in height. Plaster may also be “bubbling” and peeling away from the walls.

Once you have noticed damp in your property and booked a survey with Timberwise, our Southampton surveyors will provide an inspection of the property. Correctly identifying the damp problem is important to ensuring the correct damp proofing solution can be put into place.

Dry Rot Specialists in Southampton

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 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.
