There is a growing interest amongst architects, developers, councils and self-builders in the use of timber for cladding; not only for domestic construction but also for much larger and more prestigious buildings. A prime reason for this interest is recognition of the green and the qualities of timber as a building material.
Timber cladding is a dry process which not only reduces construction time and we can also offer cladding which is made up into prefabricated panels, further reducing construction time on site. The renewed interest in using wood to clad timber buildings has also extended to the use of wood to clad block-work, concrete or steel framed buildings. Although usually chosen for visual reasons and used as a rain screen, to the wall behind, there is an additional advantage in that it allows extra insulation to be located outside a masonry wall behind the boarding. This insulation may provide the full thermal performance of the building or contribute to improving the insulation of existing buildings.
JR Roofing are Specialists in BRICKWORK repairs, re-pointing and restoration for all types of property or structures.
Old brickwork often shows signs of damage to the pointing – that is where the cement has started to fall out from between the joints. This is a normal part of the environmental damage that buildings have to face, a combination of rain and freezing temperatures.
Re-pointing a wall is important to preserve the integrity of the brickwork.
