Preserving Timber

Timber is an important construction material and a key component of most properties. However, it is vulnerable to problems related to damp, fungi and wood boring beetles. If left unchecked, any of these issues can cause extensive damage rendering a property structurally unsafe and placing the occupants in danger.

What causes it?

    Timber Problems

    What we do.

    Our aim is to deliver high-quality and reliable timber repairs which are tailored specifically for your property’s needs.

    No. 1 Home will always endeavour to retain structurally sound timber. However, severely affect timber, it may need to be repaired and replaced.

    We have timber repair solutions for:

    • Joist Ends
    • Carrier Beams
    • Wall Plates
    • Beam Strengthening
    • Timber Resin Splices

    Epoxy Resin Treatment – Epoxy Resin is a fluid material that can be used to repair and strengthen timber within a property. It is a solvent free, resin solution which is designed to strengthen weakened wood fibres by penetrating deep into the wood.  It is non-porous and therefore completely waterproof. It can also be shaped to match the existing detail of the structure.

    Paste & Gel Treatment – When structural and decorative timber is only partially decayed a paste or gel treatment can be used.  Our specialists will then apply the gel to the surface of the timber where deep penetration is required. Our No. 1 Home specialist timber gel contains a concentration of fungicide in an emulsion that is designed to penetrate the timber structure deeply.

    Protection – If the timber is wet at the time of application, the active ingredients diffuse rapidly into the timber to provide protection against both fungal decay and wood boring beetles.

    Moisture Control – It should be noted that, when controlling fungal decay, it is essential that steps are taken to eliminate any source(s) of moisture causing decay, in conjunction with the chemical treatments, as part of the overall specification of repairs.
