Brick-Tie’s skilled technicians have been repairing masonry, stone, concrete and brickwork for 3 decades; we have never faced a challenge we couldn’t overcome. Where cracking and bowing walls are concerned, we are the experts in Yorkshire (though we are sometimes asked to work further afield for our very specialised Helifix and Cintec work). We know that for a home owner, cracks and structural problems are stressful, as well as inconvenient – we aim to take masonry repairs worry away and, sort the problem for you.
Some masonry repairs are more cosmetic than structural in nature – for example, if you have a damp problem that’s caused by cracked render, then this is fairly easy to resolve. However, occasional there may be an underlying structural issue, which needs attention; merely pointing up a crack is not enough. For example, the cavity wall ties may have failed, causing much more serious problems that need to be addressed quickly, to ensure the structural integrity of our building. Another common problem is walls bulging due to a lack of lateral restraint or in the case of stone wall, a lack of through stones or settlement of the rubble fill.
