Wood Boring Insects

Wood boring insects typically affect older buildings, but occasionally they can affect more modern construction as well. There are many differing types of insects that can infest both hardwoods and softwoods, which could potentially lead to the weakening of the structural timbers of your property. At CavityTech Systems Ltd we always ensure correct identification of the insect present, so that the appropriate treatment or remedial action can be specified.

Wood Rot Treatment

Wet and dry rot can affect timbers within all type of properties. This commonly occurs when defects arise and cause an increase in moisture levels within the fabric of the building. Wood rot in your property is caused by present fungal spores mixing with faults such as:

  • Poor sub-floor ventilation
  • Leaking roofs
  • Flashings
  • Defective rainwater goods
  • External pointing or render
