Woodworm Treatment in Cornwall

Woodworm can occur across all areas of England and Wales but it often a common occurrence in the Cornwall area. The specific woodworm treatment will need to be applied to the particular type of beetle to make sure the infestation doesn’t occur again in the future. There are many different types of woodworm including the common furniture beetle, powder post beetle, death watch beetle and many more.

These wood boring insects can vary in the level of damage they can cause, so a quick fix is not going to be substantial enough to get rid of the problem for good. We recommend you get in touch with one of our woodworm specialists in Cornwall for a fully qualified surveyor to conduct a survey at your property.

Truro Case Study

At Timberwise we are proud of our work in South West and our team of waterproofing experts in the South West were called upon to put their waterproofing expertise to inspect a property in Truro.

The owners of the property were looking to create a new basement room to complement the existing property and give extra living space in the form of a home cinema. Timberwise were required to provide a specialist waterproofing system to the inside of the newly formed room as well as providing a solution for a green roof. A green roof option was required by the client to mask the roof area of the new cinema and allow it to blend in with the existing landscaping of the property.

The solution to the waterproofing issue was to design and install what is known as a type C waterproofing solution. The waterproofing design specialist had involved the use of a cavity drain membrane to cover the walls and drainage channel which was fitted around the perimeter of the basement area.
