Gable End Timber Repair in Alton, Hampshire
Case study showing our work on a gable end in Alton, Hampshire
Alton .. Gable end repair
Due to concerns expressed by the owner, we carried out a condition survey on this early 17c cottage in Alton. We found that it required extensive work to both the structural timbers and the brick panel infill.
Many of the timbers were severely decayed due to water ingress and impermeable coatings applied to them, trapping the moisture.
We removed most of the timbers and repaired where it was possible. we carefully removed the brick panel infill and put it back replacing where necessary.
All mortar was non-hydraulic lime matched to the original.
