Epoxy Resin Repairs for affected Structural and Cosmetic Timber

Wet rot, dry rot or woodworm affected beam ends, implanted in masonry walls have been affected because of moisture absorption. These degraded beam ends can be repaired using a “timber slice” epoxy resin bonded with supplementing rods. This timber treatment ensures restoration of the original strength and prevent futuresoaking of water into the timber.

For cosmetic timber repair, “moulding putty” epoxy resin mortar is used, as it can be shaped, smoothed with sander, grained and then colored to form a superior quality cosmetic structure which is equal to the quality of the original timber.

Epoxy Resin Repairs Are Economical

Epoxy resins fixes damaged timber in a very short time at a low cos because it removes the need for traditional bolt-on steel flitch plates.
