Preserving Timber

Free Survey

Timber is a living material. It is resilient and long-lasting.

It is used for roofing support, door and window frames, structural strengthening and decorative purposes.

It requires low maintenance and treatment.

It is, however, susceptible to attack from mould, dry and wet rot and insect infestation such as woodworm.

Timber lasts longest when it is kept dry and well ventilated.
