case study 56e19c07c925b7.93748528 - Stabilising Victorian gable wall stone corbels

The subject building is a substantial Victorian traditionally-built house featuring a gable embellished with substantial supporting stone corbels, coping stones and pediment in North London.

This property required work to remedy the rotation of the supporting stone corbels and dislodged copings without detracting from the look of the property.

Action Wall Ties have highly trained staff with a wealth of experience in dealing with period properties. We used our own design of diamond drilling equipment to drill for, and install, ties strengthening the structure.
