Stop rot in its tracks with Rotstop
RotStop is a multispectrum treatment system that treats the timber framing without requiring removal of any linings or claddings.
If your house is built with untreated, or undertreated timber, then RotStop will stop existing rot and protect the wood from future decay and insect attack.
If your house is built with treated timber but has been leaking, then the treatment has likely been partly leached out. Replace the treatment with a local injection of RotStop.
Use RotStop, together with the Mdu Moisture Probe Monitoring system to identify and treat problem areas in your house.
RotStop offers long lasting protection against decay, fungi and borer – ideal for buildings with untreated or undertreated structural framing, and adds decades to the structural life of your timber-framed building. RotStop saves money during maintenance also by sterilising and treating localised areas of rot-affected timber, reducing the need for immediate timber replacement.
RotStop is injected through small holes in the outside of the house in a process which is simple, and with very little disruption to the occupants. The holes are replastered afterwards, then can be touched up with paint.
Choose the Smart Solution
RotStop is designed to propagate throughout the framing, using the timber’s natural water transport pathways to spread and deposit the treatment into the key areas most at risk in the building. RotStop is absorbed by the timber in such high concentrations that if a new leak occurs the moisture needed for fungi to live and grow is contaminated.
Choose the strongest protection you can find
RotStop is a broad-spectrum, low-toxicity preservative using chemicals with a proven track record in New Zealand. The main ingredient in RotStop is Boron, which is the safest and most common treatment used in New Zealand buildings from 1954 until now. It prevents fungal growth, germination and borer gestation. Because there are some New Zealand fungi resistant to Boron, we add additional fungicides which kill any rot likely to attack your home. RotStop puts the decay process on hold. Often no more work is needed with the protection levels achieved. RotStop application success has been verified under strict laboratory conditions often showing more than 3 times what was required to prevent mould germination and borer gestation (as measured by Primaxa Laboratories).
