Dry rot

Dry rot in timber is a misleading name as a water supply is required for dry rot fungus, it can only survive or spread in an area of dampness and a wood source. It normally prefers large dimension timbers as they give a more stable environment for the fungal infection to grow.



Wet rot

Wet rot is a generic term used to define a variety of fungal species, such as the cellar fungus Coniophora puteana and the mine fungus Fibroporia vaillantii. As with dry rot the key is removing it water supply.



timbersafe lintel

A timbersafe is a timber lintel, which is commonly installed in traditional buildings at the internal side of a window, door opening or press cupboard, and is mostly surrounded by masonry. This type of lintel is often found at the centre of a dry rot infection as it can create a stable environment for the fungus.



Epoxy resin timber repairs

In using structural epoxy resin, we can connect new timber to structural timbers i.e., bressummer beams, therefore saving damage to the building and reducing cost to the client.



bresummer beam

A Bressummer Beam is a large structural timber in traditional buildings.  Often over bay windows or other big openings.  It can have numerous floor joists and/or rafters connected to it.  Due to the large size of the timber Its bearing end can often be a focal point of a dry rot outbreak.




Penetrating damp is moisture that penetrates through the external building envelope, often because of; leaking roofs or water carrying pipework, blocked or damaged guttering, defects in the wall structure etc.  It is a common cause of dry rot in the structural timbers in contact with the damp areas.



It is important to carry out a good investigation and communicate the issues to a client.


Excellent service quick responses and explained the work required up front and was finished to a very high standard.

ADPC were thorough and highly professional. A truly skilled tradesman, Nigel saw the big picture, not only concentrating on his own job, but using his experience to understand why and how problems had occurred in our home and helping to fix them and offering advice on how to go forward. Ours was a fairly large job lasting two months. He and his team worked consistently hard and were a pleasure to have in the house, being respectful at all times of keeping the mess to a minimum. I believe ADPC were good value for money and helped with the tendering process to ensure that I employed only expert professionals for off shoots of his work. I would highly recommend Nigel and his team.

Amazing work by ADPC Property Care. Thorough survey to explore causes of damp – Nigel explained everything in detail and in a way we could understand. Tremendously high standard of work, showing us what they were doing (and why) at each stage. Excellent finish – very professional (and exceedingly tidy workers). Nigel and team are now my first choice for all property work. Rarely find such a trustworthy and professional company. Highly recommended.
