Types of Work Involved
- Groundwork & Civil Engineering
Adamson Residential were called in to help with an existing project. The client had an issue with a recent window installation where the front gable of the house had dropped which caused internal cracking and therefore a dangerous structure to live in. We were informed that no structural survey or design had been carried out prior to the windows being installed.
Our first point of call was to instruct our own engineer to design a safe method of work to allow us to carry out the job. The best option was to use a buttress scaffold and a new roof design to take the loading. We removed the entire front gable and a section of the roof to enable us to reinforce the gable and allow the windows to be re-installed correctly.
We managed to reuse the existing tiles on the roof to save the client some money, once the roof was complete we rendered and painted the front gable.
The clients were extremely happy and we received great feedback.
