Dry rot danger below a home, in Holland Park, a Southern suburb of Brisbane

Danger of dry-rot below a home, in Holland Park, identified by Peter Weddell, owner/operator of  Qld Home Buyers Inspection Service and Queensland Building Inspection Service, QBIS.

Significant deterioration to sub-floor structure and flooring below a home in Holland Park, from seepage, pooling of  water also insufficient ventilation.

Danger of dry-rot under a home

Mould is also forming to timber of this sub-floor area causing deterioration.  Due to lack of appropriate ventilation and insufficient ground clearance.

Danger of dry-rot below a home. Important notes:

  • These problems cannot be effectively and economically rectified without major rectification costs.
  • In most cases this is due to the type of building and its construction.
  • This is very serious and can cause health problems with inhabitants, especially if they have an existing  breathing problem.
  • Do not underestimate this problem as I have seen in many reports that omit it or put it down to being normal for an old building.

Do not accept this serious problem as being normal, IT IS NOT NORMAL!
