Home Renovation - Plaster replacement and restoration
These photos of a victorian home renovation we completed. The house had beautiful large victorian cornices which we restored and repaired the existing plaster cornices. The photo here is of a section of plaster cornice that we replace. We made up a new section of cornice due to the wall alterations made for the renovation.
Home Renovation - Replacing stumps, bearers, joists and flooring.
The photos below are of a project we completed where a new solid timber parquetry floor was installed. The condition of the existing subfloor timber framing was poor it had been damage over the years by timber pests and dampness. We did not want to install and expensive solid timber parquetry floor over a poor condition subframe base so it was removed and a new subfloor timber frame was built. The new subfloor timber floor also allowed us to provide a perfectly level floor that was structurally sound. A new structural plywood base for the parquetry floor was installed.
Removing the existing subfloor allowed us the oppurtunity to clear the subfloor area which was full of building materials and debri. We have a very good understanding of subfloor timber framing and subfloor ventilation requirements removing all the rubble and debris from under the floor has now allowed for great subfloor ventilation to this house.
Termite resistant timber was used for the new subfloor timber framing. This is good practice considering that termites come from the ground to attack a house and the subfloor area is normally where you will find termite damage. Victorian style period home do not have great access under them so termite inspections are limited. Termite resistant timber for the subfloor timber framing is a good choice. On other renovation projects we have used the opportunity to do a termite treatment/installation of chemical termite barrier when the floor is up and it it easy access to apply the barrier.
Home Renovations - Alteration, removing loadbearing walls
The photos below show stages of creating a opening in a structural brick wall. A part of this home renovation was to create a more open space. Temporary support of the load supported by the wall is required while the new structural building works are happens.
