Structural timbers in UK properties are particularly susceptible to fungal and insect attacks due to a combination of a damp and temperate climate in combination with the use of traditional building materials and methods used in construction.
Damp and wet conditions combined with a lack of ventilation and where damp conditions are ongoing, provides the ideal environment for destructive rots and fungus to form and take hold, causing widespread damage and decay to the timbers within a property.

Survey & Treatment
Here at ProTen Services, we diagnose and provide treatment for timbers affected by dry rot, wet rot and timber infestation.
With an in depth understanding of the unique characteristics associated with beetle infestation, fungal and rot attack, our Timber Surveyors will assess for and investigate the reasons that have caused the problem. They will then recommend the correct treatment to ensure long term cure and protection.
Our Inspection Reports will detail their findings and estimates for replacing timbers and treatment required to prevent the spread of the rot.
Our approach and range of timber treatment solutions include:
- Assessment for damp proofing and ventilation requirements
- Elimination of all water ingress causing the damp conditions
- Removal and replacement of rotten timbers
- Treatment of insitu and replacement timbers
- Application of the appropriate fungicidal spray, timber pastes, dual purpose fungicide and insecticides
- Monitoring of exit holes to establish level of activity
- Frass analysis
- Timber resin repairs ideal for sympathetic replacement of timbers in historical and listed buildings
Treatment is carried out by experienced operatives who are fully trained and qualified to carry out this work to ensure all buildings receive a high-quality solution using the most appropriate treatment procedures, methods and products.
