A common problem across many homes and commercial properties in Bournemouth, woodworm is actually not caused by a worm at all, but a species of wood-boring beetle and its larvae. Easily recognisable thanks to small holes appearing in timber and fine powdery dust on surfaces, woodworm needs to be assessed to determine if the infestation is still ‘active’ as well as checks for signs of any associated issues like dry rot.
Unfortunately the beetles that cause woodworm can attack almost any type of timber, from furniture and floorboards to joists and rafters. This means that an infestation of any size can cause serious structural problems if left unchecked.
To solve an issue like woodworm, our team will undertake a full survey of the timber in your property to assess its condition and whether the infestation is ‘active’. Having completed this, we will discuss our findings with you and offer our professional advice on the best possible course of action to treat the problem.

Our team specialise in offering high quality replacement and repair solutions as required and assessed on a case-by-case basis.
