We offer an extensive range of Timber repair options for Churches and Historic Buildings in order to avoid removal of structural timber.
In many cases timbers can be repaired in-situ, from inside the building.
Holes drilled ready for bars. Beam Upgrade - bars bonded into Epoxy. Steel Bars in a shutter box. Epoxy resin Injection Kit - 400cc.
Repair Sections - new pieces of kiln dried, Strength Graded timber made to fit the damaged area, bonded in with epoxy
Cast In-situ Resins - Structural Epoxy Pouring resin and Injection Resins for rebuilding sections, using 'shuttering', where there is no access for a repair section to be introduced.
Boron Treatments - kill Dry Rot, Wet Rot and Woodworm inside the existing timber with Boron-based preservatives. Liquids, pastes, gels and solid rods of Borate all contribute to a long service life for damp timbers
