Two-part epoxy resin is used in buildings to repair large dimension timbers which are rotten or need upgrading. A structural splice using resin, timber and steel rods fitted inside the timber is used, which allows a smaller disruption to the building. This makes it a more building friendly repair method other than traditional methods, as you can save ceilings and cornice work etc. When used as they help retain most of the building structure and lower the project carbon footprint. Structural engineers’ calculations can be supplied for some of the connection if required.
