Loose putty

Cracked glass pane

We replace all cracked glass before commencing the wood repairs

Work Processes

On average we spend 80% of our time on a project on wood restoration and its preparation for painting. We scrape off or fully sand down old paint, remove decayed wood and repair it with Accoya using high-tech adhesives like Dryflex

We use Accoya wood for repairs.
It is guaranteed to last at least 50 years.

We only use the best materials

Accoya wood

Accoya® is wood, but not as you know it. It is modified timber in which a process called acetylation, a cutting-edge patented technology, enables it to resist rot, defy the elements and stay strong for decades. Guaranteed for 50 years above ground and 25 years in ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable.

Dimensionally stable

- Swelling and shrinkage reduced by 75% or more - Doors and windows open effortlessly year round - Reduced maintenance costs

Outstanding durability

- Lasting 50 years above ground, 25 years in ground/freshwater Class 1 durability, surpassing even teak - Virtually rot proof - 70 year minimum service life stated by TRADA

Perfect for coating

- Improved stability means coatings last up to two times longer - Easier to coat, less preparation and sanding required

Elastic repair compounds

Unlike traditional two part wood fillers which crack with wood movement, resinous fillers are perfect for permanent timber repairs. They are flexible in nature and are ideal for protection and repairs of decayed and damaged wood.
