The Repair Care system uses a combination of a high speed routing machine to remove all decay without affecting the surrounding substrates, and an epoxy resin with working characteristics similar
Repairs are undertaken using resin or resin and timber as appropriate. Environmentally it is beneficial to reinstate joinery rather than to replace, especially when non-timber based replacements are considered. DRY SEAL is a flexible glazing sealant for replacing linseed oil putties in new or existing windows and for bedding timber glazing beads. It can be painted or stained and is suitable for use on most frames and glass.
The system has been used for 20 years and is specified by professional conservators and organisations that have an interest in retaining the original character of buildings. It is specified for listed buildings as well as estates and individual properties.
All the decay is removed and the joinery is rebuilt in-situ with minimal disturbance to the occupants. All Repair Care products are solvent free and virtually odourless. In almost all cases the original glass and fittings can be saved and internal decorations are unaffected.
