Buildings of all types and ages will probably suffer, at some time in their lifetimes, from one or several common problems:
- Fungal Decay – wet and dry rot
- Insect attack
Most of these problems stem from lack of adequate and timely maintenance and repair work.
Something as simple as a leaking gutter can, over months and years, lead to horrendous and expensive problems in the building.
These problems when they do occur are often serious enough to need immediate and sometimes expensive treatment if lasting damage to the fabric of the building is to be avoided.
However, wrong diagnoses and expensive, unnecessary and ineffective treatments are fairly common.
It is vital that a careful reasoned approach is used to get to the root cause when assessing what treatment is necessary.
