The rotted areas scraped back to clean timber or completely cut out
Custom profiled cedar spliced to match the window
Treated and filled with epoxy filler
Rotten window repairs

The corners of these window were severely rotten. We cut out the rot and repaired the windows by splicing in new cedar for the worst window, and treating then filling the other window with epoxy filler. This provides a much longer-lasting and stronger solution rather than filling with standard builders bog which would rot out again further down the line. Do it once, do it right!

Finished fence and landscaping
New Fence

The fence at this house was looking old and tired, so we built a new one with some additional landscaping by the front gate. We worked with the customer to come up with the design, adding some fresh street appeal to this house!

Leaky home remediation

We were engaged after the customer had a building report completed showing some areas of water damage requiring remediation in order for the council to issue a CCC. Fixing the extent of the damage presented some challenges, requiring us to replace the full wall frame while retaining the rest of the building. We rebuilt the rotten wall frame and re-installed the old windows with new sill trays, jamb battens, and head flashings, and new cladding to bring the building back up to modern standards.

For this job, we removed an old obsolete chimney from the customer's lounge, and installed two new sliding doors. The results were great, with a heap of extra space opened up in the lounge.
