What is reported on?
Borers (including the infamous European House Borer (EHB) now active in Western Australia) pose a significant threat to your home. Borers are little beetles that lay their eggs in dry seasoned timbers. The larvae hatch and begin eating away at the timber and eventually emerging as adult beetles. Several species are known to infest homes and furniture, including the Anobium borer, Lyctus borer and the aforementioned EHB.
Fungal decay/wood rot weakens exposed timbers over time. Rot fungi can appear in the form of brown rot, white rot or soft rot.
This is a reaction that leaves your roof timbers looking ‘frayed/ fluffy’. Also known as Hairy Timbers; it occurs when the lignin (glue that holds together the timber fibres) becomes damaged by airborne chemicals.
