Looking for cavity wall tie repair in Sussex?
At the first sign of cracks in your walls, we recommend seeking out a professional survey to check your cavity wall ties. Look out for horizontal cracks and bulging in the brickwork as these are common signs that there is an issue with the cavity wall. We can provide expert advice and support to help put things right.
You shouldn’t attempt a DIY cavity wall tie repair as this is a structural problem which can be very expensive to fix if it doesn’t work. We use the best possible materials to help reduce the risk of further cavity wall tie failure. We might replace broken cavity wall ties or add additional wall ties to make it even stronger. We can also address issues with openings using masonry beaming, add lateral wall restraints for bulging walls, and install micro piles if subsidence is to blame.
How do cavity wall tie repairs work?
Most homes built after 1930 will have a cavity wall. This double wall construction allows for better protection from damp and water ingress, along with providing additional insulation. The inner and outer walls are joined together using plastic or steel wall ties placed at regular intervals in the brickwork. This provides added structural integrity and prevents bulging in the outer walls.
When cavity wall ties fail, this leads to structural problems that need to be addressed quickly. A broken cavity wall tie can allow the wall to shift or it could allow damp into your property. In the worst case, it can also damage windows and doors, or even lead to a complete collapse of the outer wall. We can replace cavity wall ties in Sussex and restore structural integrity to your home.
