Epoxy Resin Repairs
Although some timber repair jobs require a full strip of the building fabric, we can, in some circumstances provide alternative specifications which may allow the problem to be solved without the need for costly reinstatement works.
In many older buildings large section beams exist carrying huge loads with many supported timbers; these beams can be reared using Epoxy Resin repairs.
Epoxy Resin repairs rely on repairing timbers in-situ and can be adapted to take on even the largest section timbers in the most confined spaces.
These types of repairs are sometimes the only solution to repairing timbers such as Church roof trusses and bressummer beams, where it is not possible to remove it without great expense.
As you can see from the adjoining photos, the principals for repair are fairly simple and can be adapted to incorporate almost any eventuality.
The repairs can be carried out with a minimum of disruption with only the affected part of the beam being exposed. This may mean that building elements, such as decorative cornices or ornate plasterwork, can remain intact, therefore reducing overall costs compared with more traditional methods.
