Timber Repairs Following Death Watch Beetle Attack
When a farmhouse in Salisbury, Wiltshire discovered damage to beam ends the Timberwise Sherborne team were called upon to devise and implement a sympathetic repair to the historic farmhouse.
The timber repair system
Our specification for the repair of the timbers involved the cutting back of the rotten timber ends. Slots were then formed in the existing timber beam end to enable steel reinforcement bars that are pre attached to the new beam end. A “Shutter” is then formed and the resin poured in. The pictures below the various stages in the timber replacement process.
The result was a low disturbance and sympathetic timber repair to the property.
