Structural beam restoration and good building practice

Decayed beam ends  is major problem in historic or listed buildings. If the beam has to be replaced the historic character of the building could be lost. With new restoration techniques the decayed ends which are inside the wall can be restored.  The method meets all building regulations and all structural requirements.

Restoration method

The process is to insert steel dowels into sound timber and then the use of epoxy resin binds to the existing timber and the dowels. The repair is invisible as it is inside the beam. The process causes less disruption than a beam replacement.


This is a process that does require building regulation and qualified personal to carry out the work. Castell Renovations are able to deal with any planning regulations, arrange for a structural engineers report and provide qualified personnel to carry out the work
