Prolonging The Life Of Glulam Timber
Our experienced team will quickly assess the condition of the glulam timber, informing of any safety concerns and providing recommendations that will ensure your building or structure is safely and quickly back in use.
We have been successfully investigating and enabling the repair of glulam components and structures for over a decade, from large sculptures and bridges in public spaces, to massive structural frames in leisure complexes, and glulam components in private residences.
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) - Helping Rehabilitate Glulam
We utilise NDT techniques of timber including ultrasound and micro drill instrumentation to establish the extent of decay, and use deep probe measuring devices to establish moisture content.
We know what to look for when assessing the condition of glulam structures, understanding the common faults and patterns of decay.

What past clients have to say,
"Glulam is a wonderful product, it excites architects it would appear and they use it to come up with wonderful ideas and projects. My house is supported by and has design features in Glulam. Sometimes however, if it is not properly installed or maintained, it goes ‘wrong’, horribly wrong.
I have no hesitation at all in recommending Lee Harper. To find a man you can trust in todays construction industry is a valuable commodity and Lee Harper and all his team can be trusted. I wish his business every success."
