LABS discuss the different timber treatments

LABS timber specialists are trained by Wykamol to their specially designed timber treatments when it comes to wood infestation. The traditional building methods combined with a predominantly damp, temperate climate causes the UK housing stock to suffer from a high risk from insect and fungal attack to structural timbers. A good practice in building design to pre-treat timber with preservatives as a lifetime precaution against dry rot or woodworm.

Most traditional and modern buildings unforunately do not have the benefit of such protection. Combine the lack of timber treatment with poor maintenance. This leads to many cases of timber decay identified during housing surveys. LABS surveyors are fully qualified and insurance to provide surveys for mortgage lenders.
