Woodworm Infestation

If you suspect woodworm Perth experts Alliance will identify the type of beetle involved, the extent of the damage and the appropriate treatment..  Alliance cover the following areas:-

  • Perth & Kinross, Dundee & Angus, Fife, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling

Possible signs of a woodworm infestation can include:

  • Small round holes on the surface of the wood or tunnels within it 
  • Trails of frass (the wood powder left behind by the beetles) 
  • Adult beetles emerging from ‘flight holes’ or dead beetles in the area Weakened wood 
  • Left untreated, woodworm can cause serious structural damage. 
Rising Damp
In our wet climate, it’s no surprise that so many properties of all ages and types suffer from damp. It’s the problem we see most frequently, as damp-proofing specialists in Perth, Dundee and Fife. 
Damp has three main causes: penetrating damp, rising damp and condensation. But no matter what’s causing damp in your property, it’s not good for your health, or the health of your property.  
Damp can lead to damage to the interior and exterior of your home, with sagging ceilings and ugly marks on the walls common.  Damp homes are more expensive to heat and might also smell bad. Dampness can also make it difficult for people with asthma to breathe, and can contribute to health problems for others.   
Wet Rot
Wet rot is basically timber decaying naturally in the presence of high levels of moisture. As the wet rot specialists in Perth, Dundee and Fife, Alliance can eliminate it – as well as its causes – in your home or business.
In most properties, there is almost always a structural defect causing the wet rot. It may be that the wall adjacent to the timber is suffering from damp, or water from a variety of sources is collecting on the timber.
Dry Rot

Dry Rot fungus is often thought of as a building cancer, rampaging through buildings and rapidly destroying any timber in its path.

The fungus, which thrives in moist unventilated conditions, will penetrate brickwork to get to more timber and can cause widespread destruction of structural timbers, skirting boards, door frames, and wood flooring.

Basement Waterproofing

Over recent years homeowner has seen the storage space of a basement being an area they can expand. 

Given the huge rise in house prices it is very easy to see the financial reward that can be gained by considering basement waterproofing and conversion. 

Developing your basement not only adds more value to the property, but increases the space and opportunity to create new rooms to fit your lifestyle or commercial opportunities.

Condensation Control

This most common form of dampness in the UK.

As our houses become more and more ‘sealed’ with better insulation and double glazing along with Fire places being blocked, draughty windows and doors replaced, this leaves moisture no way to escape.


Fire Damage

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety first! Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.

Ask yourself "Is it safe to stay in the house?"

Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.

Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

Flood Damage

What not to do after flooding.

  • Do not leave wet fabrics in place. Hang furs and leather goods.
  • Do not leave books, magazines or other colored items on wet carpet or floors.
  • Do not use your household vacuum to remove water.
  • Do not use television or other household appliances.
  • Do not turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet, and keep out of rooms where ceilings are sagging.

  • 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

  • "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

  • Alliance carried out a significant amount of work to our new home in the summer of 2018. The job was co ordinated and supervised by Aaron of Alliance, whom my husband and I found to be very knowledgeable, forthright and pleasant to work with. We were having a basement conversion done which involves stripping out everything, treating walls, then tanking and lining thereafter. New windows, doors, electrical lines and plumbing installation was involved as we were creating four new rooms down there. The Alliance team is multi skilled. I did want to employ my own electrician which was not a problem for them, and they worked with him on dates etc. They did everything else and even organised plastering, had skirtings and finishes done and laid the wooden flooring down for me. The extended skills of their team, and the speed that they work at, mean you don’t have delays in getting the job done. The team were also very mannerly when speaking to you, which was good. Michael being worth an extra mention for his skills and work ethic, as well as John. I would highly recommend using Alliance for both small and large jobs. They have the team that can cope with both. They also give a twenty year guarantee on their work and are certainly good enough to be around for twenty years to be able to honour this.  James and Lesley Singers

  • 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.
