Recently had to get the underside of the ground floor fogged by Rentokil
because of woodworm.
Need to replace part of a joist and replace the knackered chipboard
kitchen floor with ply.
I know pressure treated 4x2 is easy enough to obtain.
Is pressure treated 18mm approx ply widely available does anyone know?
If not what is best to brush on to exterior ply? - about 9 sq metres
don't know if woodworm would go for ply? did they go for chipboard or
was it rentokil who dug it all up to spray their nerve toxins?
If you want belt and braces - just get a 5litre can of wood preserver
and slap/pour it on - pref outside (brrrr! - I know)
Presume you'll just treat what will be the underside?
The joists had plenty of holes and at least one bit will need replacing.
Haven't got most of the chipboard up yet because it extends under
kitchen units. The chipboard I have seen looks ok.
Rentokli reckoned the infestation was still live and since the kitchen
needs replacing from floor to ceiling inclusive we thought it best to
get under the floor treated rather than risk having to replace the
kitchen again at a later date.
Googling suggests common furniture beetle do not like chipboard but do
like plywood. We want the floor tiled and granite worktops and are told
that chipboard is not the way to go.
