To achieve a successful and long-lasting repair a full understanding of the substrate and structure is required. Our initial question is, ‘What has caused the damage?’.

There are many reasons for varying states of disrepair – water penetration, failed cladding, failed roof timbers, bees, and subsidence. These, we have found, are the most common causes.

Deep hollows and rat runs, for example, can be quite easily and quickly repaired with the use of pre-formed cob bricks and/or blocks.
