What are resin repairs and what are they used for?

Resin repairs are used to repair or strengthen the timber within a building. The substance resin is fluid and can be used for a whole range of repairs due to its versatility. It is mostly used within structural timber repairs because of its non-porous composition, meaning that it repels water or other fluids. Timber can often become damaged because of dampness, resin aims to block out moisture and dampness.

What are the benefits of structural timber resin repair?

Resin has long been used for structural timber repairs because of the benefits it provides and its effectiveness in timber repairs. Some of the benefits of resin repairs are:
  • They minimise disturbances – Using resin repair means that you can retain ceilings and floors but still make an effective repair to the structural timbers. Many other types of timber repair will involve demolishing much more of the property to get access, often leaving the property uninhabitable for a short time. 
  • Keep your building in use – With other types of repair whole sections of a building are often exposed and unable to be used. A resin repair will only need to expose the localised area. 
  • Retain the structure – Resin repairs attempt to save the current timber through repair of the rot affected timber only.
  • Durability – Resin is resistant to moisture and therefore minimises the chances of a future fungal attack. 
  • Ornate Exposed structural timbers can be repaired to match the existing profile.
