Rot Restoration & Painting
The rot attacks timber in damp conditions and if allowed to go unchecked or without wet rot treatment, can be a common cause of structural defects within a property.
The moisture together with the presence of wood can allow wet rot spores to germinate and grow that will eventually lead to the timber losing its strength.
Typical Indications include:
A damp musty smell
Cracking and softening of timber
You may notice some fungal growth
How to Fix Timber Rot:
You have to fix the source of the water ingress to ensure that the wet rot does not re-appear.
Apply a fungicidal treatment to the timber and surrounding area where necessary
we used Ronseal Wet Rot Wood Harder to firm all areas to allow us to start to repair.
We filled all voids with Ronseal 2 pack wood expoxy filler .http://www.ronseal.co.uk/home/fillers/high-performance-wood-filler/
Filling, Flush Filling & Sanding
The production of a high class piece of
work is a process that involves good
quality preparation, filling undercoating etc,
and the final step in this is the
skilled application of gloss paint in order
to bring the work to an attractive
Wwhich is not alone aesthetically attractive but is functional and durable
thereby offering maximum protection to the substrate.
Rubbing down with worn abrasives or sanding pads between coats is essential
for good adhesion and grit free finish
Good finishing is achieved when the correct film thickness is applied, the paint
brushed on evenly crossed and laid off with care.
Good quality tools and
materials are essential as inferior ones ca
n undo all the good preparation.
