Repairs to a Porch in Southampton

This image shows the repair and replacement of the bottom portion of a supporting post to a porch. The method used is a 45 degree scarf with a timber key machined through to prevent slip of the joint in years to come . This type of rot is a common problem with posts. I also added a shoe around the bottom to prevent water penetrating and stop the post from rotting again.
