Termites and Timber rot are the biggest destroyers of homes, attacking the timber frame that holds the roof in position.
The first thing that always deteriorates or is eaten, is the bottom plate, this timber holds the wall from moving SIDE TO SIDE and holds the trusses up, there is a lot of weight depending on the soundness of the frame.
What we do is replace the bottom plate with new and dyner bolt in position, then we work to replace or strengthen the stud walls, using Treaded studs.
A lot of the time we need to remove walls on both sides to get to the damage, BUT when finished it will be as strong, if not stronger than the original as we also screw and glue the new timber to old.
