Repair wet rot on conservatory
September 30, 2011
This corner was the last section of the conservatory that I had to repair. I wasn’t aware that I had saved the worst part until last. Every bit of wood that comes together in that corner has gone rotten. There is nothing else to do but start to take away the soft and wet parts and treat the ends where I stop with hardner. I saved up the parts for replacement. I then made a sketch of the situation, numbered the parts, took them to my workshop and started to make new pieces.
I don’t particularly like this kind of work, but it does give me great satifaction I have to say to save the whole thing from dereliction. It can last for years and years again with some attention.
