DampGuard Timber Preservation specialist treatment for woodworm in Romney Marsh, Hastings, Hythe, Tenterden, Folkestone and Ashford. Treatment of Common Furniture Beetle is achieved by applying an effective combination of insecticide and wood preservative which eradicates the infestation and provides long term protection against reinfestation.

The fluids used are pressure sprayed on to the wood and will usually contain fungicides which provide additional protection against fungal infection, such as dry rot. Before applying the preservative, any structural timbers which have been weakened will need to be removed and replaced with sound, pre-treated timber.

Dry Rot
DampGuard Timber Preservation specialist treatment for dry rot in Romney Marsh, Hastings, Hythe, Tenterden, Folkestone and Ashford. The first consideration must always be the identification and remedy of the causes of the dry rot - usually a roofing or other building failure which has allowed dampness into a property often with an associated lack of ventilation which allows the damp environment to persist. Once these underlying problems have been corrected, any damaged or weakened structural timbers must be removed and replaced before treatment is begun.

Damp Proofing
DampGuard Timber Preservation specialist damp proofing in Romney Marsh, Hastings, Hythe, Tenterden, Folkestone and Ashford. The solution to rising damp is to install or reinstall a remedial damp proof course. This involves removal of the affected plaster and skirting boards, installation of a new chemical damp proof course and then re-plastering with a salt resistant plaster and renewing or replacing skirting boards. Existing skirting boards can be refitted if they are in good condition. Treatment is by the high pressure injection of solvent-based fluids or low pressure injection of water-based creams using low- pressure cartridge guns

Wall Protective Coating
