Cavity Wall Tie Replacement
If you think there is a problem with your cavity wall then get in touch today.
Failure of cavity wall ties is a widespread problem throughout the UK, particularly in older properties, it can lead to horizontal & stepped cracking to brickwork, bulging of brickwork and if left unattended can eventually cause the external skin of brickwork to collapse.
How Wall Tie Failure Happens:
Over time moisture (rain etc) penetrates in from the outside and attacks the wall ties, causing a build-up of iron oxide (more commonly known as Rust).
As each wall tie oxidises, rust is formed, expands, pushes apart the mortar beds and causes cracks.
Signs to look for:
- Vertical or Horizontal cracks in Brickwork
- Bulges in Brickwork
- Cracks appearing around Windows and Doorways
