These beams have been attacked by death watch beetle. Death watch beetle can cause severe structural damage to timber beams and eat their way up and down the heart of the timber often to such an extent the timbers eventually collapse.
At Structural Repairs we specialise in restoring and strengthening timbers that have been infested with death watch beetle and have structural repair options that will mean that the timbers do not have to be replaced, but the death watch beetle infestation can be treated and the oak beams strengthened by using our specialist timber resin repair system.
Our timber resin repair system involves casting inserting stainless steel tensile rods into the timber and pouring resin around them which adds inherent strength to the timbers. Where the timber has been repaired with our resin timber repair system they are stronger than the timber was originally meaning there is no need to replace these historic timbers.
Our resin timber repairs are overseen by a qualified structural engineer who will be able to determine if the timbers have met the required structural strength for your piece of mind. Contact us to discuss you resin timber repairs and find out more about how we can assist you with your project.
