How does cavity wall tie repair work?
Most properties built after 1930 wil have a cavity wall. This is an extra interior wall that provides protection from water ingress while also providing additional insulation which cannot be achieved with a single structure wall. These two walls are linked by cavity wall ties at regular intervals to provide extra structural integrity. These are commonly made from stainless steel or plastic.
These cavity wall ties are known to fail over time, particularly if they were installed incorrectly. When this happens, the two walls no longer function as one and the outer wall is at risk of collapse. It can also cause damage to your windows and doors which is very expensive to put right. With cavity wall tie repair, we remove and replace the old wall ties using high-tensile materials to restore structural integrity.
