Stop rot in its tracks with Rotstop
Using the unique RotStop structural post-treatment & review system (patent pending), RotStop both treats the timber framing and checks the structural members’ condition without requiring removal of linings or claddings. 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.
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 chemical 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 till 1990. It prevents fungal growth, germination and borer gestation. RotStop puts the decay process on hold while you make important decisions about the home ¨C often no more work is needed with the protection levels achieved. RotStop application success is 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).
