Our traditional building methods combined wth a predominantly damp, temperate climate causes the Irish housing stock to suffer some of the highest levels of risk from insect and fungal attack to structural timbers. It is considered ‘good practice’ in building design to pre-treat timber with preservatives as a lifetime precaution against dry rot or woodworm.

Unfortunately, most traditional buildings (and a lot of relatively modern ones too) do not have the benefit of such protection and this, combined with poor maintenance, leads to many cases of timber decay being identified during housing surveys.

Wykamol Group have been manufacturing timber treatment products, which includes woodworm treatment products and dry rot treatments since 1934 and are recognised across the industry as providing high quality products proven over many years. Our own products are manufactured under an ISO900:2008 quality management system and are approved for use by the HSE.
