We base our timber repair strategies on thorough survey diagnosis, ensuring that the loss of original or historic fabric is minimised and that the least visible methods of repair are prioritised.
Damage To Timber
Providing it is kept relatively dry, structural timber is typically resistant to most biological degradation. As most agents of decay rely on damp and moisture, ideally a property or structure should be kept dry and well ventilated.
The first action for ensuring correct repair protocol is followed is identifying and rectifying the source of dampness, to prevent the reoccurrence of the damage. Timber is usually only susceptible to fungal attack in conditions where moisture levels are consistently above a twenty percent threshold.
