Replacing Woodrot Damaged Timber
We find structural timbers that have decayed overtime from fungal decay, woodrot, overloading stress and timber pest damage.
The Cause of Woodrot and Fungal Decay
Fungal decay is caused by moisture often caused by lack of maintenance from leaking gutters, water intrusion through cladding, non durable timbers exposed to the weather and in contact with the ground.
Overloaded and Failing Structural Timber Replacement
Overloaded timber structures show signs of deflection, bending, crushing and cracking we replace structural inadequate timber structural members. Our procedures involve temporary structural works to support load and allow works to be carried out on the damaged structural loadbearing timber. This may include replacement of the structurally damaged timber or repair works depending on the situation, condition of the damaged timber and the use the timber is being used for, how hard the damaged structural timber is working.
We investigate the cause of the structural timber damage
Investigating the cause of the damage is extremely important: Is the structurally damaged timber overloaded and what from? If moisture intrusion has occurred and their is fungal decay/woodrot damage the cause of the moisture needs to be rectified or fixed. This maybe the cause of repairing leaking plumbing, drainage, cladding or roofing which may be found as the cause of the fungal decay/woodrot upon inspection.
