Looking for cavity wall tie repair in Essex?
Cracks in brickwork can indicate underlying issues which need to be addressed. The most common issue is problems with the cavity wall ties which need to be repaired in order to restore structural integrity. Using a wall tie detector and borescope, we can determine the extent of the issue and provide you with a lasting solution.
After work is completed, the wall will be structurally strengthened and this should prevent any further movement of the brickwork. We can also carry our masonry beaming to support openings and install lateral wall restraints to address bulging walls. If we suspect subsidence may be present, we can also install micro piles.
What is cavity wall tie repair?
If your home was built after 1930, there is a good chance it will have a cavity wall construction. A cavity wall involves building two walls with a space in between. This helps to prevent moisture ingress by preventing the inner wall coming into contact with the outside wall. To provide strength and keep the two walls together, cavity wall ties are positioned throughout the brickwork to provide additional strength and allow the outer wall and cavity wall to function as one.
When a cavity wall tie fails, this can lead to complete collapse of the outer wall, which can be very expensive to remedy. It could also be potentially hazardous to residents and might cause damage to the exterior of your property. A cavity wall tie repair is also known as stitching. This involves raking out the mortar joints and installing special helical bars before bedding them with a resin bonding compound. All materials used are high-tensile stainless steel which will evade corrosion over time. We can replace or increase the number of wall ties to remedy the problem.
