About LignaTek Timber Resin Repair Systems
We have been using timber resin repair systems for many years and work closely with leading timber repair system manufacturers, such as Rotafix, to ensure we are kept abreast of any technology updates. The use of timber resins includes the insertion of unseen reinforcement bars, pouring a resin into shuttering to match existing timbers, graining and staining of the resin to match any existing timbers, using grouting resins in any small cracks and ultimately increasing the load bearing capacity of the existing timber.
The benefits of using timber resin are far reaching. The use of resin repairs can speed up repair times and as a result save money as well as providing a repair that is stronger than the original wood!
