HOW TO INCREASE THE STRENGTH OF A TIMBER - WEAK, DAMAGED, OVERLOADED

Types of weaknesses that can be repaired.
1. Bending/deflection - caused by overloading, undersized timber section, poor quality timber, insect or rot damage.
2. Change of Use - from domestic to commercial, added loading such as: storage, filing, piano, Museum
3. Breakage - partial or complete failure
Types of timber than can be repaired

External - door frames, posts, timber frames, wall plates, rafter ends, purlin ends.

Internal - door frames, staircases, joists, carrier beams, bressumers, lintols, arches, rafters, tie beams, purlins, ridge beams, 'A' frames, trusses (King Post and Queen Post) and lath and plaster ceilings.
