We've included a helpful gallery below showing a variety of common issues found during various property inspections that we have conducted for our clients around the City of Swan area.
The lignin is a natural glue within timber that binds its cells together. When the lignin is destroyed this is known as chemical delignification. If this happens the timber structure will gradually weaken and eventually fail. The roof battens are normally first to be infected/ damaged which may cause tiled roofs to collapse over time. If you encounter chemical delignification in your roof space, please be aware that it is very dangerous to walk on the roof exterior as this is known as a Structural Pest.
A lot of building construction work in WA is not compliant to Standards and or Codes that may cause an issue in the future. This is one of many non-compliant construction of a stick roof!
