deathwatch beetle

Death Watch Beetle causes severe structural damage to hardwood timbers usually where some form of decay is present. Occasionally only one or two holes can be seen, but under the surface the timber can be literally eaten to destruction. This ancient manor house had severe problems with the external timber frame and some internal structural timbers so severely damaged that replacement of many was the only option.

A thorough survey will be carried out by a PCA qualified envirotec, damproofing, dry rot, wet rot preservation surveyor to identify the type(s) and extent of beetle infestation, whether it is active or historic, and specify the most practical, cost effective solutions in a detailed report. Our reports are accepted by all Mortgage providers. Fixed price treatments can be carried out by envirotec, damproofing, dry rot, wet rot preservation, with most work covered by Guarantee.

All treatments will be carried out by staff recorded on the Professional Biocide User Register.

The guarantee can be separately insured by GPI for its 10 year duration on payment of a one off premium.

More will be added from time to time, keep an eye on our site for further details!
