Wall Crack Repair

If you notice cracks or damage to your walls, you need to act as quickly as possible. It is possible that damage can be caused by issues including building settlement, wet and dry rot or even impact damage. Nowadays, wall repair can usually be completed without rebuilding the structure of the wall.

Crack Stitching

Crack stitching is one of the most popular types of structural repairs as it is quicker than rebuilding the affected section of the wall and yet it is an effective and guaranteed solution. Our technicians use specialised rods that are installed across cracks in the walls to reconnect the wall structure. This will strengthen the structure and provide excellent resilience against further cracking.

Lateral Restraints

Signs of bulging brickwork are often highlighted on houses where a section of a wall is pulling away from the main structure of the building. The cause of such buckling walls is often due to the combination of excessive vertical loads and inadequate mechanical connection between perimeter walls and the main structure of the building, for example the timber joists, partition walls and party walls. In older buildings that have no joist-hangers the timbers often sit into pockets in the masonry and rely purely upon friction to maintain their position.
