As bad as it gets!

Shortly after starting a refurbishment of a property, we were commissioned by the contractor to investigate concerns over dampness and decay. Their customer had recently purchased the property which, as he understood, had undergone a compressive refurbishment sometime in the 1990’s. Walls had been framed and lined in plasterboard which had concealed extensive Dry Rot (whether or not this was intentional or the previous contractor just didn’t understand what he was dealing with – we’ll never know).

This is really as bad as it gets with the building having to be stripped back to the bare walls and sterilised before new roof structure, mid-floor structure, lintel replacement, etc was carried out.
