Dry Rot

Postby otemple » Mon May 11, 2009 5:50 pm

A house has just come up for sale that is suffering from extensive dry rot. It cannot be viewed it is so bad but seems to have been caused by a hole in the roof.

I know it will only be a rough guide but how much is it like to cost, assuming a worst case scenario, to replacing all timbers and treat throughout.

It is a three bedroom mid terrace, circa 1900.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Dry rot is a very serious problem in a property and can be difficult to eradicate. The cost of treatment can run to thousands but more significantly the cost of replacing affected structural timber can be tens of thousands!
