Dry Rot

Dry rot is wood decay caused by certain species of fungi that digest parts of the wood which give the wood strength and stiffness.

Damp proofing

Damp proofing is a type of moisture control applied to building walls and floors to prevent moisture from passing into the interior spaces. Dampness problems are among the most frequent problems encountered in residences.

Wet Rot

Wet rot is a generic term used to define a variety of fungal species. Wet rot fungi obtain their food by breaking down the cell walls of wood, resulting in a loss of its strength.
