Our timber care repairs team are highly trained and experienced in determining which resin repair method will be appropriate for each job in hand.

What Is Timber Resin Repairs?

Timber resin repairs are utilised in cases where timber does not necessarily need to be replaced but can be repaired and reinforced. Timber resin repairs are able to strengthen timbers which find themselves in a weakened condition.

Why Are Timber Resin Repairs Needed?

When it comes to renovating or restoring buildings that have suffered structural damage, or upgrading a structure to cope with a heavier load, it is vital to have an effective way to manage timber repairs. Timber, when not maintained properly can become fragile. If it isn’t appropriately treated it may become warped, infected or break. In addition, it is common for timbers to experience damage caused by woodworms, wood decay and rot. On the contrary from more traditional timber repair methods, timber resin is able to provide a solution which does not involve disturbing undamaged timbers, brickwork and plasterwork. More traditional timber repairs are also known to detract from the aesthetic appearance of timbers when on beams which are exposed and visible. Timber resin repairs are thus needed when timber damage is not extensive enough to require a full and complete replacement.

How Are Timber Resin Repairs Conducted?

Solid resin repairs, for example, are performed when the end or centre section of a piece of timber is damaged or needs strengthening. A shutter box is created and epoxy resin poured into it over steel rods. Once it has set hard the shutter box is removed. Other methods include making a Timber-Resin Splice to repair in-situ timber beams or trusses leaving an almost invisible joint. Crack repairs, on the other hand, involve the injection of resin into the splits in the timber, while joinery and cosmetic timber repairs are easily affected with resin. If your property requires any sort of structural timber repairs, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our timber repair team are highly trained and experienced in determining which resin repair method will be appropriate for each job in hand. We first survey your property to assess the repairs required and then apply the appropriate techniques.

Are Timber Resin Repairs Effective?

Timber resins are very effective when it comes to their ability to repair damaged timber which is not damaged enough to require a full replacement. In addition, timber resin is one of the most effective means in order to repair broken structural points such as at the ends of beams. Timber resins are likewise known for their top-notch adhesive properties, high mechanical strength, and resistance to chemical attacks. In the same vein, timber resins are highly waterproof meaning they are now affected by elements such as fungal decay or woodworm infestations. In all, there are an abundance of benefits which can be taken advantage of when utilising resin as a method of timber repair.

What Are The Benefits Of Timber Resin Repairs?

Epoxy resin has many advantages and is suitable for most applications, from repairing beams and sagging joists to filling cracks and splits or repairing areas of fungal decay, rot and insect attack. Being a fluid material with excellent adhesive properties, the resin can be shaped to match the detail of nearly any timber structure. It is non-porous, so cannot be penetrated by water, repelling any and all the challenges nature throws at it. This means that a resin repair is extremely durable, resistant to damp and fungal attack.

You can also rest assured that epoxy resin will never shrink, and it is extremely strong, bonding well with the existing timber. From our point of view, the best thing about using epoxy resin to repair timber is the fact that it enables us to save or recycle all sorts of wood structures in a building, repairing them rather than replacing. This is important to us, especially when we are engaged in a sympathetic renovation project.
