Wet rot has potential to cause substantial damage to your property. Although not as problematic and severe as Dry rot, it should nevertheless be identified and treated as soon as possible. Wet rot commonly attacks the timber in the property where damp conditions occur, and it can lead to structural defects within the timber.
Again, as with dry rot, the cause of this can come from a multitude of sources, broken plumbing, gutter, stone pointing and many more. As excess moisture infiltrates timber it then allows fungal spores to germinate and grow, this will eventually progress to the timber losing its strength.
Typical indications of wet rot include:
- A damp musty smell
- Cracking and softening of timber.
- There can be fungal growth

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
Damp proofing front and back
Brilliant service, very quick and were spotlessly clean at the end of everyday they were in the house. Can't recommend them more!!
Littlemoss Preservation--excellent service
I asked Littlemoss to undertake a damp proof course on a two bedroomed terrace in Radcliffe that I had rented out. Within a day of instruction the work was booked and was carried out in two days including all re-plastering. Then I asked for the walls to be replastered above the DPC in the living room and other rooms in the house and this was carried out quickly and to a very professional standard. I then asked for two new UPVC Doors The doors were ordered and fitted within 2 weeks which is very quick. The workmanship was faultless and the price very competitive. They also fit condensation vents, fixed the roof and did some more re-plastering! I liked them so much I kept coming for more because they are truly a one stop shop. Walt Dixon met me on site to inspect the work and was always available to help for timescales and updates. Truly excellent service, reasonable price and 5* workmanship done quickly and cleanly.
Will be my first and last stop for future works!
I had quite a bit of work done by Littlemoss in January this year and I am completely happy with it. The guys that did the damp course really tried to tidy up and did a great job - they had brushed everything up and even rinsed their cups! So they were really considerate which was nice. It all looks great now and I wish i'd had it done ages ago.
Can't fault this company!
I am extremely grateful to Littlemoss for putting right sub-standard damp proof work which had been carried out on a rental property by another firm. I have nothing but positive things to say about Littlemoss. They were friendly, professional and charged a price that could not be beaten by anybody else anywhere. I seriously would not hesitate to use this company again!!!
So happy, I booked in extras
I found Littlemoss via there facebook page, I sent a message one evening asking if they could look at a damp problem in my kitchen and received a response within 20 minutes even though it was outside usual working hours, they arranged for a surveyor to call out the same week on my day off which was free of charge ( I had contacted a few other companies the same night who wanted to charge me for the inspection) The man that attended my property was very friendly and helpful and I received a report the next day letting me know what was required....and with a very reasonable price too ! I booked the work for the following week and everything was completed to a brilliant finish within a few days. I am so happy with everything that I have another job booked for a brand new kitchen and laminate flooring which is being fitted next week, I cant wait and know that i will be just as happy with this job as i was with the first.
Outstanding work after the storm a few weeks ago my roof was damaged and letting water in ruining my ceilings but i found Littlemoss on here and was able to get them out to do the works straight away. So happy with the roofer they sent out and the plasterers.
The guys from Littlemoss did a great job all round damp proofing all the downstairs of our house. They were professional and the team worked fast and well. Also worth mentioning the after care as they definitely called and checked to make sure we were 100% happy with the work.
Dry rot and damp proofing works
I discovered an unsightly dry rot issue in my property and had Nathan come out to survey what needed to be done, he was very professional and even came out on his day off to survey my property. Kerry then sorted out for all the works to be carried out on my property and got me in very quickly to have the work completed. She project managed the whole thing for me bringing in a tiler and a pointer. I spoke to Wally directly regarding a few minor snagging issues and he sorted them out for me quickly and promptly and what a nice gentleman he is. Good job Littlemoss.
Full Renovation Project
My house required fully renovating. Littlemoss surveyed to inspect damp, woodwork & the roof. There was no charge for this service which included a detailed report. Walter Dixon took care of the works timetable & organising the right people for the various aspects of the job. This included damp-proofing, structural works, rebuilding of a gable wall, roof work, woodworm treatment, electrics, plastering, carpentry. Pricing was realistic and although some works were not priced until after completion, charges were broken down in detail to ensure I was happy. Works completed were done to a satisfactory level with a reasonable balance between cost, speed, & quality. I had a few problems with electrics which slowed things down, but these issues were eventually rectified to my satisfaction. Using Littlemoss to oversee the project helped alleviate the stress involved in using multiple tradespeople. If problems were encountered, Walter would work with me to find a solution to my satisfaction.
I recently used Littlemoss due to a timber problem I was having due to dry rot Littlemoss were able to fit me in quickly and solve the problem and give me a 20 year guarantee. So happy with the job they left my house so very clean and tidy.
Excellent Service, Friendly Staff
Littlemoss Preservation have recently completed works at my first property. I was a little nervous when I received my homebuyers report report with a big list of recommendations, but a friend had recommended Littlemoss so I gave them a call. The girls in the office were very friendly and helpful and were able to break down the homebuyers survey into a list of essential and recommended and provided me with a full report on everything mentioned in the survey...thankfully most items came back as okay and i only required some damp works and pointing the the rear of my property. They were able to book the works in for the Monday after the completion of my property, the lads were friendly and arrived on site at the given time each day and they were all finished by the Thursday which meant i was able to use the weekend for the big move. My property was left in a clean and tidy state at the end of each day and the guarantee was hand delivered the following day.
Above and beyond customer service
Great company, cavity wall ties needed to be installed at a property I was in the process of selling. Against a tight deadline the work was completed and the guarantee delivered to my door long after working hours . House was left nice and tidy and customer service was great. Highly recommended.
Littlemoss to the rescue
We had a really bad damp problem in our property, after 2 years of this problem happening and the other firms we tried they could not resolve this issue. Thank goodness that we found Littlemoss they sent a surveyor to have a look at the problem and within 10 days after 2 years of getting no where with the other firms and costing us a great deal of wasted money, the problem was solved. The reason I have made this review is to let other people know what a fantastic job Littlemoss have done for us.
Great firm fantastic job
Littlemoss preservation have just finished a full new damp course and timber treatments for wet rot and beetle infestation. I would like to say that these guys were great from coming out and doing the initial survey and to the completion of all works. A credit to the industry. I would recommend them without hesitation, great job Littlemoss keep up the good work.
Gorton - Terrace
Purchased an investment for my daughter in need of damp work. Met with Wally Dixon from Littlemoss who realised I was not a businessman making a fast pound. Wally was able to give good honest advice and his reputation was more important than the money. Work carried out with fast precision and quality workmanship. Guaranteed to be damp free for the next 20 years.
Polite, fast, friendly and cleanest builders I have known. Keep up the good work guys.
Being a Letting agent I have used Littlemoss on a number of occasions now, I have found them courteous, friendly, price competitive and above all very professional, from the initial phone calls to the exceptional reports generated for my clients. I would not hesitate to recommend to them to any of my family, friends or clients. Well done and keep up the good work.
Littlemoss Preservation have just finished a damp proof course, cavity wall tie and roof repairs at my property. I would recommend them to all my friends and family, the staff were extremely friendly and workmen very professional. The works were completed with no issues and property left nice and tidy ! I would definitely use them again.
Structural repairs and Cavity Wall Ties
I used Littlemoss to rectify some structural issues on the outside of the house, inserting lintels above doors and windows and sorting out an outward bulge. They also then installed new cavity wall ties. They have done an excellent job. Throughout the whole process I had full confidence in the ability and knowledge of all of the workmen who worked on the job. Walter, the owner, is one of a kind (put it this way - you'll never forget him!) bringing many years of experience with him. He regularly visited to check that the work was being completed to the highest standards. I would gladly recommend Littlemoss to anyone and would use again in the future without hesitation.
Excellent Company, Fantastic Company

I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.,I used Littlemoss to sort out a damp house, they were prompt and very professional, the workmen were great, everything was fully explained and the house was left in a more than acceptable condition. I will recommend them to anyone.
Excellent Service, Professional Workmanship
Littlemoss Preservation have just completed a damp proof course and roofing works at my property and I must say from start to finish its been a pleasure doing work with them. Right from my original interaction with the girls in the office arranging my free survey, they were able to get a surveyor out and a report back to me within a couple of days with the works required and at a very reasonable price to rectify. I then spoke to the office and booked the works and was able to get a slot for the following week and I was advised to how the works will be completed and the timescale involved. The workmen attended site each day and kept me informed of the process and works were completed within the timescale advised, although this was a messy job they cleaned the site at the end of each day and were a credit to the company. I would highly recommend Littlemoss to all my friends !
Damp proof, leading of chimneys; Guttering
Wow totally impressed with this company...friendly efficient...came to my rescue after being ripped off my a previous roofer and builder who did a damp proof...explained everything what needed doing...really good price and had the job done in no time...cleaned up after themselves...a rare gem of a company...would highly recommend....can't thank them enough for their care and support.
Full Renovation after serious fire. 5*****
Recently used this company after one of our properties caught fire and was severely damaged. The service provided was of a very high standard. The price quoted by the company was reasonably better than a number of other companies that we tried. The work was completed within the time limit given and to a very high standard. Do not look elsewhere, we would highly recommend this company over any other used in the past.
Extension with damp proofing
This company did my extension in 3 weeks to a high spec. What a good bunch of lads, courteous and respectful. They went out of their way to minimise disruption to my neighbours and daily updated me on the next days work so I was informed where the work was up to. High standard of work from start to finish. The architect and building inspector met me on site and explained everything. I have never seen a bunch of lads work so fast. As a woman I felt happy leaving them in my house If I nipped out and felt comfortable having them around all day. I would definitely use this company again and recommend their work.
