COMMENTS - a ground floor terraced flat with no
access possible to the flats abutting or above. The bressumer spanned the bay
windows of the two abutting flats and had been attacked by Dry rot due to localised
failure of the Flat Roof above.
Exe Terminators carried out the Dry rot
eradication works and persuaded the Structural Engineer, James Halldron, to accept
a triple TRS as a method of repairing the composite bressumer. This method did
not disturb the existing roof covering nor intrude into the flat next door, although
naturally opening up and treatment was recommended to establish the full extent
of the Dry rot.
