Repairs to Failing Cavity Wall Ties
How will you know when your cavity wall ties are failing? The answer is that it’s often the consequential damage that failing wall ties cause that’s the first sign something is wrong – i.e. horizontal bed joint cracking, brickwork cracking and bowing.
These symptoms can be the result of a number of defects. Horizontal bed joint cracking is mainly caused by corroding wall ties, bowing walls due to insufficient density or inadequate embedment. But if you notice bulging or cracking to your external brickwork walls it makes sense to call in an expert to identify the root cause of the problem.
Commonly in cavity wall constructed properties the issue can be traced back to wall tie corrosion, where the gradual expansion of the rusting ties to several times their original size results in the lifting action, cracking bed joints horizontally and cracking bricks.
