Rotten WoodworkHas your property shown signs of rotting timbers?
Floor and wall timbers in a property rely on a lack of moisture, together with adequate air flow, in order to retain their integrity. Cavity wall insulation can cause problems by trapping moisture within the timber and also blocking the air flow. This can lead to the timber frames rotting. More worryingly, once timber frames have started to rot, the spores will continue to grow and spread to other parts of the property, even if these parts have not been initially affected.
