Floor Replacement and Associated Works - Stourbridge

Suspended Timber Floor, Timber Decay, Replacement Floor, Stourbridge, Timber Decay, Wet Rot

Complete replacement of the Living Room floor completed whilst the homeowner continued to live at the property and it was paramount no damage was caused to the wider room / property including the decoration. Works were undertaken to remove and dispose of existing floor and clear the sub-floor void.

 

The decay to the existing timber was attributed to extreme condensation within the sub-floor void which corresponded with a shortage of air bricks having been installed at the time of construction and over time these being less efficient due to blockages, a leak to a bathroom sink to the reverse side of one of the walls was also identified and rectified. 

A new floor was installed to previous levels using pre-treated joists and new floorboarding allowing for access hatches to be formed should access to the sub-floor void be required in the future, prior to the whole area floor being sprayed with a timber preservative. 

Additional works including replacement and new air bricks to two elevations and alterations to the rear patio to allow for the re-routing of a defective downpipe.
