Further Information

Timber Preservation

The building had been unoccupied for a number of years, and was effected by dry rot and dampness and woodworm. Due to the damp in the building, some of the large timber beams were found to have wet rot at the bearing ends. All wall plates and rafter ends were treated with a preservative to help protect the timbers from further wood rot problems.

Basement Waterproofing

The existing stone construction basement did not have a basement waterproofing system in place.  A cavity drain basement waterproofing membrane system was designed and installed by Stronghold for this building.  A sump and pump system was also installed.
