Looking for cavity wall tie repair in Hertfordshire?
At the first sign of cracks or damage to your brickwork, we recommend seeking advice from a professional. The wall ties that keep your outer wall and cavity wall secured together can corrode and break down over time leading to structural issues with your property. At Tapco Homedry, we can provide professional cavity wall tie repair that will address the source of the issue and prevent it from returning.
We offer a wide range of solutions to help restore the structural integrity of your outer walls. To avoid a complete collapse, it’s important to act quickly. We can also provide masonry beaming for compromised openings, lateral wall restraints in the case of bulging and micro piles if the wall ties have been damaged by subsidence.
How does cavity wall tie repair work?
The majority of properties built after 1930 feature a cavity wall. This is an extra inner wall that helps to protect the property from water ingress and provide additional insulation. These two walls are connected by cavity wall ties at regular intervals throughout the brickwork. They are made from stainless steel or plastic.
These are known to fail over time and can lead to structural problems, including complete collapse of the outer wall. The wall may also shift and bulge, causing damage to doorways and windows. We can replace cavity wall ties or add additional wall ties to restore the structural integrity to your home. Our wall ties are made from high-tensile materials that are resistant to corrosion.

How do I spot failed cavity wall ties?
When cavity wall ties fail, the two walls no longer function as one structure, which can lead to bulging and collapse of the outer wall. It can also increase the chances of water ingress and rising damp. The most common signs of cavity wall tie failure include:
- Movement in walls
- Bulging brickwork
- Water ingress
- Broken window ledges and frames
- Collapse of the wall (in the worst cases)
