Wall Tie Installation or Replacement
The team at Property Remedies have many years of experience in the stabilising of property through installation or replacement of wall ties.
We have extensive first-hand experience with the following example of wall tie failure, particularly relating to council houses.
Houses built in the 1920s and up to the Second World War were often built with mortar using “Black Ash” which has since been found to be detrimental to the galvanising of metal wall ties when moistened due to weathering through the mortar joints over many years.
If the galvanising becomes broken down, then rusting begins to occur to the wall ties and due to the lamination, the ties will increase in thickness and cause horizontal cracks to appear on the exterior of properties in the brickwork or rendering.
Property Remedies specialises in the removal of old defective wall ties and the replacement of them with new stainless steel mechanically fixed wall ties.
Property Remedies will carry out a Wall Tie Survey and send you a Report and Quotation and these can be passed onto the Building Society Surveyor if necessary.
