Small wet rot work affecting the original timber lintel at the rear entrance of a tenement in Powis Place, Aberdeen.
Quite a tricky one as the brick work above the existing timber lintel was loose and had to be carefully removed stone by stone. Penetrating damp had been an issue for quite some time and resulted in the total decay of the timber lintel.
The lintel was replaced with pre-stressed concrete options (small type A’s at 1200mm long) then bricked back up and made secure.
The area was reframed and foil backed plasterboard fitted ready for a skim coat of plaster.
