Looking for cavity wall tie repair in Maidstone?
Cracks in your brickwork can be a sign that there is an underlying issue with your cavity wall ties that needs to be addressed. If the wall ties have broken or come loose, this can lead to structural problems, including a complete collapse of the outer wall. We will use a wall tie detector and borescope to determine the extent of the problem and offer a cost-effective solution.
Once the work is completed, the wall will have its structural integrity restored, which should prevent further movement and damage. If there are further issues, we can also provide masonry beaming to support openings and implement lateral wall restraints to fix bulging. And finally, if we suspect that subsidence is to blame, we can install micro piles to address the issue.
What is cavity wall tie repair?
The majority of homes built after 1930 will have a cavity wall construction. This dual wall design helps to prevent water ingress by creating a physical barrier between the inside and the outside. It also offers additional insulation that wouldn’t be possible with a single wall construction. To keep the two walls together, cavity wall ties are installed throughout the brickwork to provide strength and integrity.
If the wall ties fail, the outer wall is at risk of collapsing, which can be very expensive to fix. It can also cause damage to windows and doors, not to mention being a hazard to residents. With cavity wall tie repair in Maidstone, we can replace broken wall ties and add additional ties to help restore the integrity of the wall. We use high-tensile materials which are less likely to erode over time to help protect your property from damage.
