Client Background: SMPS Building & Preservation recently undertook a significant project in Darvel, Ayrshire, focusing on valley rafter repairs for a valued client. The client, a homeowner in Darvel, had noticed signs of water damage and deterioration in the roof structure, particularly around the valley rafters. Concerned about the structural integrity of their home, they sought out SMPS Building & Preservation for their expertise in building preservation and restoration.

Client’s Challenge: Upon inspection, it was evident that the valley rafters, crucial components of the roof structure responsible for directing rainwater away from the roof, were compromised. Years of exposure to harsh weather conditions, coupled with poor maintenance, had led to rot, decay, and structural weakness in the valley rafters. This posed a serious risk not only to the roof’s stability but also to the overall safety of the property.

The approach involved a meticulous process aimed at repairing and reinforcing the damaged valley rafters while ensuring minimal disruption to the client’s daily life.

  1. Thorough Assessment: Our team conducted a thorough assessment of the extent of damage to the valley rafters, identifying areas of decay, rot, and structural weakness. This assessment served as the foundation for developing a tailored repair strategy.
  2. Precision Repairs: Utilising industry-leading techniques and high-quality materials, our skilled craftsmen proceeded with precision repairs to the damaged valley rafters. This involved carefully removing decayed sections, reinforcing weakened areas, and replacing compromised components to restore structural integrity.
  3. Waterproofing Solutions: Recognising the importance of protection against future water damage, we implemented effective waterproofing solutions to safeguard the repaired valley rafters against moisture infiltration. This included the application of specialised sealants and coatings to prevent water ingress and prolong the lifespan of the roof structure.
  4. Quality Assurance: Throughout the repair process, our team maintained stringent quality assurance measures to ensure that the work met the highest standards of craftsmanship and durability. Regular inspections and testing were conducted to verify the effectiveness of the repairs and guarantee long-term performance.
