Timber Rot Repairs

Timber rot repairs treated early can save major costs in the future

Timber decay starts when sufficient moisture is present and the timber has no chance to properly dry out. Once decay starts it can seriously weaken the structural integrity of your home.

Decay makes the wood more permeable meaning that it absorbs moisture more readily, speeding up the rot process. At advanced stages, decay is obvious, but in the early stages it may be hard to detect so any timber discolouration should to be inspected.

Exposed timber, especially the timber ends, such as balcony beams and pergolas are just two areas where decay is most likely to take hold. Look for areas where there is poor ventilation or where water gathers, such as condensation on glass causing water to pool on window sills, or traces of algae or mould giving the substrate a green or black appearance.

Really great job guys

Luke pulled down our back pergola and rebuilt it as it was unsafe, rotted and falling down. I was surprised at how quickly it went up.

No job was too small

The final result looks great, and my first home is now my dream home. Thanks to Mike and the boys for a job well done.
