Timber preservation extends the life of your wood, so you avoid nasty (and costly!) problems such as woodworm and fungi. We inject chemicals into your wood, which help preserve and protect it from the elements and insects.
In the long run, it’s far cheaper to preserve your wood than it is to fix any problems down the line. Our treatments mean your wood is resistant to decay and even fire.

Fixing Problems with Wood
Sometimes, for whatever reason, problems occur with wood. Perhaps you’ve moved into a new property, and there are certain issues that need to be fixed. Maybe you’ve started building work, and you’ve uncovered rotting timber.
Problems such as dry rot, wet rot or woodworm can be extremely stressful, particularly if it’s impacting the foundations or supporting elements of your property.
We’re here to help.
Our team can assess whether they can repair your wood. We’ll give you an honest view as to whether repairing or replacing is the best option. Sometimes, it’s better to replace to ensure the longevity of your property.
There are many causes of decaying wood. Our job is to identify why your wood is damaged and put in motion the appropriate treatment. Things that cause wood to decay are:
Woodworm is a wood eating larvae that can have a devastating effect on your wood. The signs of woodworm include small holes in the wood, rotting and weak joists, and faeces left behind by the beetles that infect the wood.
