Window Rot Repair
When a window or sill has a rotten area, it is important to identify the damaged section and have it removed before it's too late. We don't do patches, we do repairs. Covering the rotten sections with filler or bog is not a long term solution. Our team cut out the rotten area, replace it with the same type of timber, sand it and then add primer, leaving it ready to be painted.
You can see some examples of our work in the pictures below.

Unless you have new doors in your house, chances are they have been repainted several times and starting to develop a worn appearance. Ask any experienced carpenter and they will tell you the same: it is worth stripping off layers of old paint on wooden doors. The finish will be much better and you will reveal the true lines of moulding and edges, which will have been buried beneath many layers of paint over the years.
Stripping off the old layers of paint demands a lot of effort and can also be dangerous, if the door was painted before the 60's, as old paint contained lead. However, at No. 8 Building Recyclers, we have a safe and efficient way to do the job: dip stripping.
Once all the layers of paint are removed, you can choose between repainting it or keep the wood showing by adding varnish or oil.
