A SALUTORY LESSON – Removal Of Severe Dry Rot And Refurbishment Of Flats

BCB were called to investigate damp problems within a house converted to several flats. The lessees knew there had been some maintenance problems that should have been attended to more quickly by the freeholder - but were horrified when BCB reported back that the damp had caused major dry rot problems throughout several of the flats, as the rot had spread from the ground to first floor. What a salutary lesson to indicate that your property should be regularly maintained! BCB were retained to provide full Project and Contract Management services for the £200,000 repair project which involved relocating the residents, stripping out all the rot from flats, rot treatment and reinstatement of the property after repairs.

The rot spread is some of the worst ever seen by members of the BCB team – note the fungus which was exposed when floorboards, ceilings and fittings were removed – even fungal growth within a bedside table drawer!
