The condition of the structural beam should be investigated by a professional engineer, contractor or preservation consultant who will drill holes in the finish woodwork or carefully remove small sections of woodwork to examine the condition of structural members within. If temporary structural support is needed it should be installed by a professional with plenty of structural repair experience. Photo: ŠJohn Leeke.
