Dry rot is a fungus that thrives in moist, unventilated conditions. It’s so destructive that it will even penetrate brickwork and concrete to get to more timber. It can cause widespread damage to structural timbers, skirting boards, door and window frames and wood flooring if not treated, dry rot is the most serious type of damage possible to building timber.
Although the fungus is called ‘dry’ rot, moisture is essential for it to thrive. Without water or dampness of some kind, the fungus spores cannot germinate or spread. Leaky pipes, faulty roofs and damaged gutters are all sources of the moisture needed for dry rot to take hold. Bad ventilation adds to the problem, and creates ideal conditions for the fungus to germinate, grow and spread. Damage caused by dry rot can be extensive before the attack is even discovered.
If you suspect you may have dry rot in your property please contact Alliance for a Survey and thereafter estimate.
Please feel free to browse our Gallery which shows projects undertaken by Alliance where areas affected with dry rot have been treated.
When we purchased our new home in Perth at the end of December 2016, the home report had identified a number of items (scoring 2s) that needed fixing. We invited Alliance to quote for fixing all these works (which required different trades). The work was done on time to a very high standard with the workmen polite and tidy and the supervisor checking to make sure that there were no problems." Peter Lloyd 20 Graybank Road
Thanks for a job well done! hopefully that will be the last of the rising damp in my house. Please thank your technicians for the care they took of my home!"
Alliance were highly professional from first contact, and arranged to carry out the works to our property very promptly. Their friendly operative worked assiduously and took immense care to ensure that dust and disruption were kept to an absolute minimum. We were very impressed by the level of service and after-care. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alliance for damp or timber treatment; they are a firm who value their clients and put an emphasis on extremely good standards of workmanship.
a portfolio manager in Stirling i have used Alliance Preservation services for over a year now and would not be tempted to use any other contractor for damp, rot or roofing services, they are always very accurate at quotation, have never had to recall back to a job, always very professional and knowledgeable about the services they provide.

Aaron, Tracey and the team at Alliance Timber couldn't have been more helpful and supportive. From the initial inspection to the completion of the job they provided a professional and high quality level of work and service. Thank you.
Recently we went through the process of selling our cottage in the local village. During this process the property was surveyed and a local infestation of wood worm identified. We contacted Alliance Preservation who quickly and efficiently dealt with our concerns. From this positive experience we would have no hesitation in recommending Alliance Preservation. Stuart Hardie
"It is always a nasty blow to discover dry rot, however you have softened the blow by being consistently pleasant and efficient to deal with. Many thanks to you and your team for a job well done!"
I had a Drimaster ventilation system installed in to my property. Within 48 hours the condensation problem I had been experiencing was totally gone. Amazing product I would recommend it to anyone having condensation issues. Mary McGregor,Bankfoot
Just wanted to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the work that your team completed at our family home recently. The speed and quality of service by you and your team attending to my en-suite leak and damaged floor was very impressive. To message a contractor over the weekend and get an almost immediate response then attend my property the following day is a real credit to your service standards.
On the day of the job i found your team totaly professional and approachable with the work completed to the highest standard with minimal fuss. If it hadnt been for the new wet wall, i am not sure i would have realised your team had been in.
Although i am sure this was not the biggest job in the world, the high standard, professional service I received would leave me with no hesitation in recommending your services not just to friends and family but clients and insurance companies alike.
