What is Woodworm?
There are several species of wood boring beetle in the UK. Damage is caused by adult beetles laying eggs on timber -they cannot tell the difference between a dead tree and part of your home.
The egg hatches and the grub bores into the timber and eats the wood for several years depending upon the species. This has the potential to weaken susceptible timber elements such as floorboards, joists and rafters over time.
Correct identification and treatment of the infestation will provide long term protection to your property.
Modern treatment methods are environmentally benign and virtually odour free, unlike the situation which existed many years ago!
We provide a twenty -year warranty on timber treatments and can also offer a back up warranty insurance for a one -off premium if required.
