Structural timber repairs have always been an expensive and time consuming operation. From timber repairs within a timber lintel in a Georgian terrace or sandstone terrace, to a huge timber tie beam in a barn conversion; if a new piece could not be spliced, or bolted on, the lot had to come out often leading to expensive structural repairs. Very often in timber repairs, even if it was possible to bolt a new section of timber on, the overlap for the bolts can be so long it was almost like replacing the entire timber anyway.
What is the common cause leading to timber repairs?
When it comes to timber repairs, generally the main culprit for rotten timbers is damp leading to either wet rot or dry rot. When dry rot or wet rot occurs within timber, it can often usually result with extensive exposure work to replace the timber or "bolt on" unsightly steel plates or side-splice.
