General Building Work in LL36
Posted 26 February 2018
Job Description:
1. Dig out to make gully / drain around the base of the building (drain is only needed at parts of the rear, L-shape and side of 'porch') where it's obvious the earth is backing up and causing damp up the walls. 2. Dig out enough around the rest of the rear of the building ready to create a path - it will require a step or two around the rear due to the natural gradient of the land (being sure not to block the small access to the water pipes underneath the rear of building). 3. Prepare ground with hardcore or similar and lay slabs of 600 x 600 around entire rear of building including L-shape and the back and side of porch (total length approx 15 metres) to a level sufficiently below the timber-line and adjacent with concrete / breeze block foundations to prevent earth and water backing up and causing further timber rot. 4. Remove and replace rotten 'sill plate' timbers that run horizontally and directly along the top of the concrete / breeze block foundations but underneath the timber walls, along the rear of the building, in the L-shape and in the back corner of the porch. The pictures show where the timbers are damp and rotting in the corner of the porch but they're also bad in the corner of the bedroom next to the porch and along the main rear of the building. Access is available to the main part of the building underneath. 5. Install small retaining wall to prevent the earth from the rear, L-shape and back / sides of the porch from backing up against the side of the building, probably with prefabricated concrete fence / wall panels. 6. Repair / replace any vertical, outer-wall timbers around the main part of the building as required.
