Dry rot and wet rot can affect buildings of all ages and if decay is discovered action should be taken immediately.

Dry Rot

Serpula lacrymans develops extensively on the surface of infected timber and in still, humid conditions produces a mass of cotton wool-like growth. Water droplets are often produced on the surface of the mycelium.

Wet Rot

This type of rot is caused by a range of fungi. While each fungus is different, the general appearance of wet rot is similar - as is the treatment. Wet rot is typically confined to the area of dampness because the fungi does not spread into the walls.
