We carried out extensive and substantial repairs using oak splices to a 300 year old property in Marston.
The work comprised major plate repairs and replacing the corner post in its entirety while maintaining the integrity of this interesting old building.
Our craftsmen employed their knowledge of stonemasonry and carpentry to carry out the repairs using traditional materials and lime mortar.
We were commissioned to replace a large section of sole plate to the rear of the property which required some very intricate propping. The sole plate was replaced in lengths and the vertical frame was cleated to the plate before reinstating low level brickwork.
To the front of the property we had many rotten sections of oak to replace and a number of brick panels were rebuilt in lime mortar.
The property was transformed from a very unstable structure to a sound dwelling that will now last for many generations.
Once the client had redecorated it was extremely difficult to actually see where the repairs had taken place.
