structural timber repairs in Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex
There was severe decay in some of the structural timbers in the rear of this mid c15 'Wealden' cottage now divided into two. Cementitious mortar had been used to fill the decayed areas which proved very difficult to remove but which was causing further moisture to be trapped and more decay. We removed the cementitious mortar and the decayed timber before splicing in new dry oak and repairing the windows.
