Moore - who is he? Where did he start?
Moore, the Managing Partner of Property Repair Systems, started the Company in
1997, having worked since graduation from Leeds University (B.A.Hons.) for GKN
in Engineering and Organisation and Methods, then qualified as a Dampness and
Timber Surveyor, spending over 30 years in the Damp Proofing and Timber Preserving
Industry, both as a Contractor and as Sales Development Manager for a National
Chemical Formulator, Remtox Chemicals, which was a part of the Laporte Group of
Companies. He then worked for a major UK Epoxy Resins Manufacturer, Rotafix Resins,
which directly led to his Invention of the Timber-Resin Splice repair system for
structural timbers in buildings. He is an Inventor, engineer, Technical Author
and qualified Dampness and Timber Building Surveyor.

many years in the Chemical and Resins Industry and also in working with decaying
and historic buildings, David Moore realised that a far better solution on both
counts was to replace the missing wood with matching wood and use the resin, combined
with invisible steel reinforcing rods, just for load transfer and connection -
and thus the 'Timber-Resin Splice ' was born.
new concept - pre-manufacture a new piece of replacement timber to exactly replace
the missing part, fitted with bars or slots ready for connection and the whole
thing is supplied as a 'kit'.
