I completed some repair work to a porch for a customer the other day. The porch had gone rotten in the usual places and wood worm on on the fascia board also needed attention.
|The corner post had rotted through on the bottom|
|The gutter had been leaking on the corner and had rotted out the end of the fascia board|
|Wood worm on this piece was quite bad and needed splicing|
|I cut the bad wood from the this piece and then sanded back all the fascia so I could treat it all for woodworm before making my reapairs.|
|The bottom of the door frames also needed splicing|
|A new piece spliced in|
|All treated and primed ready for the next coat of paint|
|New corner post and cover strips|
Not a glamorous job but I was pleased with the results and so long as the porch has a proper coat of paint it should last for many years to come.
